Watching the reels

Of video,

Seeing you,

Seeing me,

But,

Where's dad,

You never told

Me.

The moment I left

I could see

You were

Three parts dead.

I needed you

Like, you needed

Me.

You kept holding

The tape

Of our lives

Until

You could,

No longer,

Hold,

On.

I lost you

In person.

In my memories

You will stay.
