For Kim

Oh my dear lady
my sad lady
my lonely lady
my grieving lady

Whether we are apart or together
Whether our paths reach that fork
and you choose the right
and I choose the left

We share that common bond
That bond which is absolute
A life-long bond
An exclusive bond
A bloody, brutal bond
An eternal bond

Members of a selective club
Members of a cursed fraternity

We are one of THOSE
those who have loved 
loved and lost
a child...

Tim, you are one of the few poets who can truly tug at my heartstrings with your genuine, compassionate words. You have beautifully expressed a terrible sorrow, something no parent should ever have to go through.

An empathetic, heart-hugging poem, Tim. It's something every parent shouldn't have to go through. "A bloody, brutal bond An eternal bond..." This is deep... it cuts like a knife. <3 Always, Laura

The loss of a beloved one is hard to express, but you do it with feeling and a sense of resignation. Take care my friend. // paul
