In all times

In all times

And in all lives

There are moments filled

With the sincerest intimacy

You and I shared such moments

And I thank you

And love you

For those times

Note: I wrote this poem for my father, Sanford Cleveland Kahrmann,  sitting on the bed in his room ,the day after he died.  August 16, 1969. He was 55.  I was 15. It is the only thing I’ve written that I remember word for word. Never have I been more focused when writing than I was  writing this.    ~  PSK
