I enjoyed this poem very much. My own husband struggling with air--heart problems. Thanks for such a well-written poem.
This is simply excellent! I enjoyed this poem much. When I saw it was about a father, I started to read; my father loved me much. I am glad that I have the opportunity to read and enjoy poems like this through Narrative's Poem of the Week initiative.
Although very sparse, this poem is loaded with beauty and grace. These lines speak from a place of authenticity, particulary in the end. Stunning and heart-breaking. I loved it.
This poem is very compact. It tells so well a story that most can't even begin to sum up in prose. It's very well written and I enjoyed every bit of it!
