Father And Son - Poem by Jeffrey SpahrSummers

And so I carry you this last time
To your exhausted bed of death
Where words of hope faith fear
Lock our eyes in a final salute
Silent thoughts and old wishes
Driving us to a familiar silence
No need to speak these words
The private ones never once
Uttered in our lifetime together
