    May I first of all offer my condolances to you..

    Goodbye Papa

    As you lie there
    silently, asleep it seems
    I see the journey
    written on your face
    Hedonist without compare
    with so much stories to share.


    after a short, but fierce fight
    Partying on, I am sure, with delight
    with the ones that await you
    in the land without time.

    It's all I can offer in way of critique...I just thing by separating the two stanzas with the word gone it lets the reader breath and take noet in between? Your first stanza is obviously about his passing but the second gives hope about his future in the afterworld...hope this makes sense to you...?

    My condolences to you Ingrid. I'm so sorry to hear about your loss.

    There are no fair words to describe how touching this poem is, it's beautiful. Beautifully sad, though.

    I've missed you and your writings a lot.
    Take care of the world after him Ingrid, he would want you to do that =)

    Write on~

    What a lovely tribute to your father, beautifully crafted in a poetry form. I'm sure your dad would have be delighted to hear you read this from the heaven above. You've painted such a delicate farewell for him, it's neither sad nor happiness in it but instead I feel that this poem is about accepting one's death rather than grieve over it.
    A nice way to stir the soul.

    Take care
