I found this commemorative plate by chance, in the heart of Dolomiti.
It was near shelter Capanna Fassa, over 3100 meters.
It was hidden not far from the path that bring to Capanna Fassa.
I cannot explain to you what I felt reading it.
There's no words, in order to describe it.

I translated it for you, may you can feel my same feelings.

To Davide… 1976-1995.

I didn't know how to help you
to exceed the difficulties
of the most impervious of the paths: …
…the life.

One day we will meet again,
and I will ask to hold your hands
and to have your forgiveness.

Until then,
from the highest peak…
watch on me.
…yuor dad.

      SimoDM thaks for this post.
      I quote some words

      Father
      You stare at me from the black-rimmed frame:
      forever smiling, forever young
      in your officer's white uniform.
      You held me in your arms who am now
      older than you ever were or ever will be.
      Did I cry? Did I smile? Did I learn to know you
      before you became unknowable?
      Am I like you?
      Is my son?
