MY FATHER (12-1888 to 1-1984) Oh, father, lying on your f'mal bed, You went from us without a by-your-leave And left me with so much that was unsaid That wrings my guilty conscience as I grieve. When in your later years you blamed us all For any flaw or hurt that came your way, I stood your hurts behind my mental wall, And, more than others, took what you might say. But then, one day, I guess I had my fill And said some things I never should have said, But thought I'd patch it up with my good will-- Too late, my words address a silent bed. So, father, you no longer care where you are now, But I must wake each day to rue that foolish row.
