Parlor Mishap, Dream On

somehow they forgot
to include one procedure
they asked if I could help them
move you to a bed
I gladly helped lift you up
and stroked your hair one last time...

    I'm almost reluctant to comment on this one. It seems like a very private moment which touched you deeply. I love this gentle write, Tim. A warm hug to you, my friend. Licia :-)

    tim , I like this one. It seems so loving, but why is it called parlor mishap? what was the procedure that was missed?

    I agree with your comment made to me. I too adore the ocean! (but instead of a fish, I am a dolphin!)
