a very sad poem and I can see why it won the feelings contest - congrats!

Sometimes cancer wins - yes, but in the long run doesn't the person who died win? No more pain and they go to Heaven.

This is a sad story of a destined death of a love one. At least he will die with nature around him. Sorry for your coming loss. Both my parents died of cancer.

Good luck in the contest and keep writing

Happy Holidays

Hi there. Good work about your Dad here.
Exactly is spelled like that.
Your Dad is happiest being outside with his animals. His favourite place is there. Usually its with family but I prefer animals too.

A beautiful heartfelt poem. I have been there so can relate to it. The poem is so well written with perfect rhyme hence the six stars. God bless.

I experienced the same situation with a friend, then it came close to home, my brother. For each of them, I could not imagine what goes on in the mind of the dying person, but I am completely sensitive to the situation.

I was very moved by this short narrative poem describing a father being wheeled back home (from a hospice perhaps) to die. I like how the Speaker keeps the focus on his/her father throughout, describing what a gentle, nature-loving man he is. Easy flowing 4/3/4/3 quatrains with ABCB rhyming creates a sad but not sorrowful mood. Strong feelings evoked without being maudlin. I love it! Rod

    I feel when someone says they have been there because I feel close to them at the same time and yet my heart cries for them also. Thank you so much dear friend

This is a beautiful heart warming picture! Nature at it's best. This would be my husband wish when he leaves this world. The cancer will win out and wear him down in time to come. His days are numbered so we enjoy each and every day here on earth.
