Musings

Words Unsaid

He died alone.

On a highway, in his car.

He pulled over,

And his heart gave out.

That’s all there was.

The news,

Slammed into my mother’s soul

Like a hammer on crystal.

She never got to say goodbye,

Or, that she loved him, again.

Neither did we, his children.

Children who learned about

Unconditional love from him,

And the woman who,

Never got to say goodbye,

Or, that she loved him, again.

About Bob Kallberg

Retired reporter. Concentrating now on recounting Joanie's 12 year battle with cancer, a battle she waged with extreme courage, determination and an indomitable spirit, that, for me, serves as an example.
