I want to come to Autumn with the silver in my hair,
And maybe have the children stop to look at me and stare;
I'd like to reach October free from blemish or from taint,
As splendid as a maple tree which artists love to paint.
I'd like to come to autumn, with my life work fully done
And look a little like a tree that's gleaming in the sun;
I'd like to think that I at last could come through
care and tears
And be as fair to look upon as every elm appears.
But when I reach October, full contented I shall be
If those with whom I've walked through life shall
still have faith in me;
Nor shall I dread the winter's frost, when brain
and body tire,
If I have made my life a thing which others can admire.

Hey, Dad. How's it hangin' in the afterlife these days? Every time, like the other day, when leaving a hotel room, I hear you in my head reminding me to jiggle the door to make sure it latched. I think of you every day. You truly are still with me.|

You still have a lot of nerve being dead and leaving me with Mom and Dennis. It's amazing how often I hear your voice even though you aren;t here. I know what you would say. I had a dream and in it, I was able to hug you and it was so real. I could feel ...(Read more)|
