Always There When I Need Him: If Only Reverse Had Been True

________________________________________________________________________________________________

I am presently eleven years older
than my father was when he died.

We presently have
very meaningful conversations
whenever I feel the need
to conduct them


I was twenty-one years old
when he died
but I have yet to see
a more handsome man than he

...AND...

All of the above equally applies
—with gender differential—
to my mother

 
The one exception:
I am sixteen years older
than she ever was
