I should have listened to you then

4 Mar

how was I to know

that one day I would call you on the phone

and you would no longer answer?

 

 

 

you were always there

to talk with

to visit

how was I to know that your time

here was about to end?

 

 

If I could do it over

I would take time to talk each day

I would withhold words

that were not so kind and gentle

 

 

but I was self-centered

and missed times we should

have enjoyed

 

 

how I

miss you

 

 

I will

always miss you

    Jim, spoken so well. As time passes, I, too, share these emotions of loss and regret. Thank you, Ray
