Death Is Slowly Stealing My Father Away by Eve Tselepatiotis

Death is slowly stealing my father away

In heartbreakingly small increments

Each day steals a bit more of him

His voice is almost all gone now

All I have is the memory

Of things he has said,

The voice speaking-

Saying his words

Is my own

Now.
