I should have listened to you then

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

As a teen, wanted to live from writing poetry. Wrote several books, selling nationally. Hung out with readers throughout the United States. My writing has been on back burner. Now dusting off my desk and have my pen in hand. Hope you enjoy some of what I write.

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