Poet's Notes about The Poem

Right at the end of last year's fall semester, my dad's father passed away. I had never seen my dad cry before, and I did not know what to do to comfort him. Everyone handles grief in their own way, and finding ways to cope with the inevitable proves to be difficult. My father has always been in my life to love, comfort, and support me in everything I have ever set out to do. The night I wrote this he apologized to me for not being a better dad to me. I did not know what to say because to me, he is my hero, my rock, my support system. I could not have asked for a better man to teach me about life and guide me through my journey here on Earth. This poem was my way of reaching out to him to let him know how much he means to me and that I'll always be here for him.

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
