TALKING TO A SLEEPING MAN

 

Kermit B. Marsh, April 2010

 

The last time I saw my father alive we talked.   Our conversations had

become increasingly incoherent as time went by.   This one was no different.   We

talked... and then he was tired.   I helped him to his bed, and he went to

sleep.

 

I sat in silence for an hour while he slept.   Then I kissed his forehead

and bade him good-bye.   I walked away from the nursing home where he had spent

the last eight years.

 

The next time I saw my father he was laid out in his coffin.   We brought

him to the grave yard to lay his weary bones to rest.

I am an Architect, strong yet sensitive and gentle. I like to make things work. I am fascinated with words, their origins and their meanings. I am a dreamer and a hopeless romantic.
