Note To Belov'ed, But Forever Gone Daughter

O, daughter-child,
where have y'gone?

a two year eternity, just like it,
   just like it was just yesterday.

My failing heart has tried to
let me go
to wherever it is you've Gone.
Almost "made it",  but somehow
got pulled back.  Things here, almost
     intolerable since you left.
Disease wide-spread, & still spreading.
Wildfire turning west coast to a hell.
Relentless smoke out there, blotting
     out the sun, turning days into an
     orange, but dull'glowing darkness
     at mid'day, even many miles away.
Outrage at our racism, demonstrations
     all over the world, triggered by whiteboy
     cops killing George Floyd over a bogus
     $20 bill. Then,  a barrage, of white cops
     on innocent black person(s) coming
     occurring, &others unveiled from recent
     past.  All while a white kid kills 2 unarmed
     people, then marches directly into a
     mass of cops, gun plainly visible, hands
     in the air, & no one bothers to apprehend
     or arrest him.
And then our president so obviously (& obnoxiously),
     lying, insultingly, putting re-election as top
     priority dwarfing national distress, collective pain
     of the nation ignored and further insulted.
"It'll just go away"------

Leah, Leah, Leah.....I miss you So much  beyond any
      words can tell.  Oh, how I and your Mom Love and
      miss you.
                     Your Daddy
