LikeLike Reply Yes, life is like that though, so much we don’t say to each other. If we think of that as poetry, how sustaining it is. Thanks for noticing the background hum here. 🙂 LikeLike Reply I can so relate. As my hubby travels – but at least he’s got a job…in this economy! And now at least you can use computers to see those far to bring them near…even for just moments. 🙂 LikeLike Reply Yes, we do stay in touch, and we are grateful he has steady income. My daughter was so sad to see him go this time though. 🙂 LikeLike Reply I think it is different now…While my dad didn’t travel he worked two and sometimes three jobs so we didn’t see him all that much growing up :s I like the cookie commercial where the parent and child have a snack before saying good night… LikeLike Reply My daughter is used to her daddy being a regular part of her life, he usually reads her a story every day. And he is always available for a hug. LikeLike Reply I think forty and fifty years ago daughters had different relationships with their fathers… especially when they were teens and Dad didn’t know what to do and was more worried about the bills – but we knew he still loved us 🙂 LikeLike Reply We aren’t quite there yet. We’ll see. 🙂 LikeLike Aw, blessings on his journey, blessings on you and your little ones waiting at home xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx LikeLike Reply We are all well and happy!! Thanks!

Especially the repetition in the last line…haunting. LikeLike Reply Sometimes repetition can be too much, especially in a short work, so I am glad you like it. My daughter sighed when I read it to her, paused and then smiled with her whole face. She asked me if it was for her, and I said yes, and she seemed well pleased. LikeLike Reply That’s lovely 🙂 LikeLike Reply I was NEVER good at writing Haiku…LOL This is nice! 😀 LikeLike Reply Thanks! It’s hard to boil down feelings to 17 syllables, for sure!
