A moment captured in time
of a fathers struggle to live
even in the depths of pain and discomfort.
Resting in a chair at window ledge
peering and frowning as if to memorize,
immortalize this moment.
A mini vacation set aside
to help rejeuvenate and de-stress.
Niagara Falls river rushing by
His pain as deep and disguised
as the rivers current.
Mom notices his absence of thought
and clicks the camera.
The flash awakens his dreamy state
as he smiles at her
What was he thinking?
She loves him dearly and misses him already.
A black and white photo left behind
that will never reveal
the life of colour they shared in the 51 years of marriage!
