The Chair

Not all empty chairs

Are unoccupied.

The Chair

I saw an empty chair once

And realized too late

My father had been there all along.

    I’m glad you found the comfort in his presence. I love this post. Perhaps it wasn’t too late after all.

    Sadly, that is a lesson that many of us learn too late. Me included. (After reading the other comments, perhaps I read this the wrong way, but this is how I understood it. Maybe the lesson here is different for all of us.)

  7. To all the chairs in our lives Colleen.. I have one of those but in memory only and it is never unoccupied. Beautiful post.

    I have to just sit with this a bit and take it in, Colleen. You always move me towards thinking from a new direction. There are some powerful memories going on here, I think.
