A-Z CHALLENGE, The Letter V, Victor

 April 26
The Letter V

Victor ~ my husband, who crossed his bridge September 18, 2012

The poem below was written less than five months before he passed away.  Surprisingly, it was written during a few weeks time when he felt and looked better than he had in a very long time, and we both thought and believed he was on the road to remission.  This was not to be.
The photograph is from when we first met. 
Although he had dabbled with poetry, and prose throughout his life, it was random and infrequent
 and he had never before written to me, or written about his cancer.
