Thanks again Andrea. It's really not exactly pain. Hard to describe.... Like a dull grey disappointment.

Thank you Archana. I too often fear I did not try hard enough to not like him..... By the way... You should be proud of being a mother of two.

With Haiku you can say so much without saying much. There is so much behind the so little. You are right. My father always had only the best wishes for me. It just would have been nice to have had a meaningful relationship. Gone now.... Thanks for the read white sage.
