My Dear Father

My Dear Father this is not an empty house
Though you strive to make it so

Grief can tear the ribs from you
But your love for her should not let go

Put back up the pictures
Put your lives back on view

48 years of marriage still survive
And Mum is quite mad at you....

    Interesting write that has the reader questioning what exactly happened here. Keep the creative pen flowing. Sara
