Goodbye Daddy - Welcome Home - PA Prompt Welcoming

Thought he was home
until he rose from the
crisp scented bedsheets
in that summer sun
sparkled morning
and with lifted arms
smiled, exhaled apricot breath
and fell into the ever embrace
of a tomorrow
so clearly, so completely,
not of this world

  2. Two tributes to your father in a row. This one has the bonus of making me both feel and think. Thank you.
