    My mother slowly died from Leukemia... My father was like you, in your position. Words can never express your sadness... but you did it beautifully. Our condolences will never be enough... but they and our heart are there for you. Plus our Prayers. God Bless you. Eventually we will all be in Gods hands. Now, it's not enough as your heart tears, but he is still there. And we are, too. I see in your words your pain. Please see in our hearts both kindness and understanding.

    Sorry your Dad died of lung cancer, that's very sad. Lung cancer is a difficult one to treat, they have brachytherapy, that's where they inject isotopes into the lung and they fight off the cancer from within but again not always effective. Its a terrible disease. Take care, Lee

    We've all lost loved ones to these or their relatives. I am so sorry. Losing a parent is like losing part of one's identity. Well done David. Congratulations. Love, Joyce

    What an incredibly sad write my friend! I hate that you have gone through this with your father! I can't imagine the pain you went through during the time he had this, and especially when he passed, it had to be insurmountable! Thank you for sharing this powerful poem David! It's nice to see you posting a little now and then! Hope you and yours are doing well! Great Work!!

    A heart felt personification describing how these two work "together". Sorry for your loss, David. This sounds extremely uncomfortable and painful...your father must have been a fighter! Best wishes, Mikki
