In the Autumn of my Life

I walk through flames of autumns’ sweet refrain- That break beneath a weight too much to bear- Where- I tread in solitude and mourning there- Along a path of maple trees and scented air- As I recall the life that we once shared- ~~~ And in the twilight hours I see the beauty of it all- In every autumn leaf that softly falls- ~~~~~ In loving memory of: My Father - Harold George Oct 27, 1927 - August 11, 2003

Amazing poetry, a calm grief, a way to invoke peace on a loved father in his last abode! may God have mercy on him.

Makes me wish I had known him. A perfect ending to a loving relationship between daughter and dad. The acceptance of death as part of life.
