Coulda, shoulda, woulda.

 

I did  not  notice  until  you were  gone

How  much on you I had  depended upon

Always  you’d  ring when I  was low

I needed  you, how  did  you know?

 

The times  I said that  I would  ring  and  then forgot

You  would  forgive me,  but I will not.

So many  things I  should of done

Things unsaid  too late now  you are  gone.

 

As I sat  beside your  bed

I strained  to hear what  you  said

Right  to  the  end  you  thought only  of  others

Trying  to  reassure  us,  your  sisters  and brothers.

 

I respect  the  decision  you  have made

You were  ready , no debts unpaid

But  this  is  selfish thought,I know

I miss  you M why did  you go. ❤

 

Another  lesson life lessen I have learned

Tell those  you love, you  love  them often, before  your bridges  burn.
