I looked up and saw his face.
Worn, sad, almost a lonely look.
His best friend of sixty years
no longer able to verbally communicate…
His body no longer able to do what he wants…
The look on his face
brought tears to mine.
I Walked away, but couldn’t stay away.
As I approached his room
He was lying lifeless on his bed
I called out to him… And said …
Want to go for a ride?
He looked up and moved slowly
I spent the next two hours with a man I love more than anyone…
Two more priceless hours of my time
Moments in time I will always cherish.
When I leave his side,
I leave a piece of my heart.
Times that I will always hold dear.
For this man,
I will always love and care…
I love you daddy!
