Michael...I think that this is the very best poem, I have ever seen from you!
I love the tender portrayal of the parent. I know that Larry must appreciate that, as I do...having also been in that position almost 2 yrs ago.
You have written with such feeling, exactly how a parent feels when his/her child dies.
I remember when Eric died...wondering why it was him....he had so many years to look forward to, such a bright future, a beautiful little family started....
I really thought it should have been me instead of him...indeed, at that moment...wished it had!
thank you for sharing this with all of us.
