I miss you Dad

I miss you Dad

Leafless trees
branches entwined
clutching at the wind.

Lifeless eyes
a hallow embrace
clutching at my heart.

Mirthless tears
pouring down salt
into my wounded soul.

Listless eyes
turned quickly away
by my haunted essence.

the trees
seem to mourn
the passage of a season,
while I
Morn the passing
of a gentle man of reason

    I must tell you there have been so many diverse poems shared here at PoetrySoup yesterday and this morning that I am just now being able to read. Each one is a treasure to the poet who wrote it. It is a pleasure to me to be able to read them. I am so happy yours was among the ones I have read today Robert. Love, Carol

    A very very touching poem ..... I liked it very much indeed....may I suggest the spelling of "morn" should be "mourn" wishes...Syd
