I hold your hand and carefully try to capture it Imprint on my brain the texture of your wrinkly skin the warmth of your touch the way your fingers wrap around mine
After seven years of illness my fathers battle with his cancer was coming to an end I was torn between conflicting emotions as my sister became a mother around the same time my fathers health declined Watching a new life groe whilst another was weakening redefined my understanding of time &nbsp it became clear just how fragile life really is
At times when home felt too close nature gave my mind a safe place to rest All the while the forests slow growth and decay resembled the illness that was consuming life as I knew it

You Felt the Roots Grow was born in a time between hope and grief It is my personal experience as a daughter in which I face the bittersweetness of transience the poetry within loss and the incompleteness of memory
