I was visiting my Mum and Dad’s grave the other day it was the ten year anniversary of their passing. It’s a big cemetery lots of headstones etc. So many lives that now only live in peoples memories.
I thought this poem might ring a chord of familiarity of some of those left behind..
Musical composition seems to be eluding me at this moment...
Thanks for reading.
I wish I’d listened to you more now.
Now your gone from me.
I wish I hold more your memories now.
Now your not there to see.
I wish I’d been there for you now.
Now your just picture hanging there.
I wish I had made the time now.
Now I become to late aware.
I wish I’d not been dismissive now.
Now your words would mean so much.
I wish I had just lingered longer now.
Now I’m without your touch.
I wish I’d believed in you now.
Now your words ring so true.
I wish I had our time again now.
Now I can’t say I love you…
