    Dear Ruben, I think you know I wrote this poem on the flight to my father's funeral. I'm glad it means something to you, even thought the message is sad. Thanks so much for your kind words. Congratulations on your win! Love, Carolyn

    that is a good one - what a powerful ending! i can see why you chose this one!

    This poem of Carolyn's just grips me right in the heart. It had to have touched many people as they read it...especially those who adored their fathers so much. For Carolyn to have had her father til the age of 93 is a blessing, but I know she wished for more. This makes me miss my own father who died on my bday in 2005..It is hard to visit his grave site as I see my bday on his tombstone. We were very close and I write poetry today as a way of continuing a hobby that he shared with me! Gotta save this one, Ruben. Thanks for posting this!

    Dear Ruben, thank you for your very kind words and for choosing this poem. It's special to me. I wrote it as I was flying to Dad's funeral, but my sister said it was too "amateurish" to read at the funeral. Now I wish I had read it anyway. God bless you,my friend. Love, Carolyn

    you should have read it. but i think she was thinking you probably would not have made it through before breaking down.

  1. Date: 5/20/2012 11:14:00 PM

    Ruben, if I remembered the title, I most likey wouldn't be in this predicament? I thought the poem was in my fav list. Hmmmm, a lot of Carolyn's free verse have short, one or two world titles and I am mixing them up. I will take a peek at your own fav list.

    LOL! I got it!
  1. Date: 5/20/2012 10:58:00 PM

    Ah Ruben, this is a wonderful choice for your favourite Devonshire. I can't find my favourite Devonshire. It is an earlier free verse of hers, and the list is gigantic.
