Poem by Mary Hobson
For Neil. 11 February, 2011
I thought the man I loved had died. WeТd married, not three years before, in nineteen-fifty-four. Then headaches, pain, the abscess on the brain. I count the cost, discover what heТs lost, and take this stranger home with me. But just a few short months before his death, quite suddenly he was the man I knew again. He let our children see the man I loved, the man they never knew. While I sat by his side and nurses hovered anxiously above him, with his last breath he let the children love him.
