A Memory of Undying Love 4.22.2008


He stands for everything I revere:
honesty, truth, personal integrity,
unique eccentricity and most of all
a memory of undying love….

But I am fighting a battle lost
to have the family reinstate his
honour – where do I begin and
where do I end the campaign?

The conclusion is foregone, I
cannot hold on to a principle
in the face of unanimous
opposition but I shall cherish

truth in my mind, making
my father King and crowning
him in my life, using him
as my role model…
