A very touching poem, Paul that we can all relate to...

very touching Paul...but to me somehow it conveyed the feeling of adding strength...perhaps thats what a parent's (mother's or father's) words mean to us...through our life...

wishes,
devika

Thank you all for your comments. It seems ironic that I posted this some 25 years since my mother died on what turned out to be the eve of my father's death.
