    This is beautifully sad, David. A flawless tribute to a lost father, or perhaps grandfather. I'm adding this one to my favourites. Congratulations on a wonderful win.

    For some reason a picture of John F. Kennedy in the oval office with his son sitting under the desk popped in my mind. Heartfelt poem..Excellent write to me though tinged scarlet with sadness.
