Seeking ways

Shriveled Alone the man in the wheelchair sat, head bowed bereft of comfort,

Shrunken well beyond what he was in years not so long past,

In a place he would rather not be, a journey he neither desired nor wants,

Yet knowing this is his life what little he has left.

Many "if only-s" run through his head,

Knowing that nothing could now be done

The knot now tied cannot be loosened,

His past is written in stone.

Still he hopes when loved ones appear,

Seeking ways to let them know

That now he understands what his actions put them through

Though words are still hard in coming.

His son walked up and stood before him,

Just like his dad in his younger days

Yet different in the lessons learned

From the wounds his father visited upon him.

The young man looked upon his dad remembering the horrible past,

Then knelt before his father’s chair, and in a low voice said I forgive and understand.

Weeping for the first time in his life, the father clung to his son

Amazed at the gift of live freely given to him, in the mercy shown.

This was a very sad piece you wrote about. Anyone with issues with their fathers would appreciate this, it made me almost shed a tear :(
