|One day we all see our parents when we look in the mirror. I really like this simple and touching style of writing on this particular occasion. Love the disappearing image at the end of the poem, Gene.

|Gene, your experience, real or simply poetic, I experience frequently when thinking of my father -- of how with each passing day my looks are changing, as I look more and more like him -- I often ask myself, why did you not utilize every possible moment to delve into his vast experience base -- many things he shared I passed up as strictly an opinion I did not always share -- I learn day by day they were not opinions but facts -- it is his smile and the few hugs he relented and shared in his last few years that I cherish most -- I miss him and wonder, what are you doing now dad, where are you now dad? -- you have reached an emotional well with me Gene -- and I sincerely appreciate the depth of emotions in your poem my dear friend -- I bid you love and peace -- Jon Michael|

|The feelings well and I feel them trickle down my own cheeks. I, on the otherhand, never knew my father as "an old man." He died at only 30 years old. I wished him a Happy Father's Day, too. Sending love to you on this special day, Gene.|
