Don’t go to summerland yet…

~ Drip-Drip ~

The I.V. drip drips

I look at tired eyes with lines

From a joyful life

I hold a hand

Once strong and calloused

Now weak and trembling

I smile down at him with the love

Only a daughter can give

I.V. drip drips

He closes his wisdom filled blue eyes

Goodnight Daddy

I will see you in the morning

Silence

Except for shallow breaths

From my father

My tears spill over as I watch

The I.V. drip drip

For T.M.H.

I love you daddy
