Hard truth, well told. I really feel the love in this poem.
losing a father. so hard. any parent actually. heart felt piece. and time, it does go so very fast.
i really liked the opening stanza, especially.
Touching words. Missing a father is a very bad one.
Very poignant poem. I don't think there are many things we fear more.Lynne x

I could feel your love for him. It's such a sad disease

Your poem is so beautiful - it's pulling on my heartstrings.

Oh my. This is excellent and really strikes a chord with me.

Gail,Beautiful poem. The strong love a daughter has for her father. Dealing with your father's memory lose was very hard.You stood strong, and allowed him to go off in his world.
Dad stood in the mirror.this opening line repeated gives a strong desired effect. Alzheimer's disease is very painful.
Gail, did YOU write this poem???? It amazing, I LOVE it. It really needs to be published. It really has me crying now, but I believe really good poems make you strongly feel something. I saw my Grandmother through Alzheimers, it was awful, No words can describe it. So your dad has it? I am so sorry...
Having lost my own father (but to cancer) this one got me. So hard losing those we love and watching them go.
*hugs*What a beautiful mirror frame.♥
I have stood in that mirror with my Aunti - I understand. Feelings most raw and deep. Well written Gail.
Beautiful and from the heart. Perfectly done.
Beautiful! Brought tears to my eyes!
This one is absolutely beautiful.=)
