  1. A more beautiful memorial I couldn’t imagine, although it’s surprising that you wrote it while he was still alive.

    • I generally consider it a gift that my muse can pull things I know nothing about and make them so real to those who read my words. I’ve done such with several poems. This one was instead a curse that I obviously wish I did not have to learn about first hand.

      Thanks Bob.

  2. Thanks for sharing your poem with us — it is a work of art. I look forward to reading more of your slices this month.

  3. Charles, Kevin and Ruth – Thank you!

  4. Anniversaries are a great reminder of days gone past, but what is neat is your big events and decisions are being made on the same day. Very smart if you ask me. A lot easier to remember.

    • Not exactly on the same day, but within very close range of the events; so yes the reminder is always there. I don’t know how smart that is, but I’ll take it. Thank you Michael,

  5. I’ve read it aloud…. and now I can’t speak
    The poignant words leave me breathless
    my knees have now gone weak
    I don’t know how to express to you
    how this poem made me feel
    I’m sitting here staring at the screen
    all emotion raw, and real…..

    Damn, Rai…. Awesome poem….

So? What do you think?
