got to say
goodbye to you.
You left suddenly
surrounded by strangers.
I could not be by your side.
I could only vigil in place.
I would have held your hand and whispered
“go, do not be afraid, Mom is waiting.”

Dedicated to my father, one among the multitude of souls who have lost their lives to COVID.
