Goodbye, Dad...

I realize I've been trying to distract myself so
I wouldn't have to say goodbye to you... so
I wouldn't shed tears... so
I wouldn't die inside...

So I wouldn't have to regret
That you didn't die in my arms,
That I wasn't able to tell you
How much I will miss you

The conference distracted me from the work of mourning. The family reunion reassured me. The love of a friend comforted me. But I knew it wouldn't take long and you would call me back to face this empty space. Speak to me.
