I will remember you

12 Sep

I did not
come by and visit
and bring you
the brownies and ice cream
you asked for

you waited
for weeks
and months

I planned to visit
as I had always done
but being busy
got in the way

I don’t know how long
it was before
I got the phone call
that
you were gone

too often
these days
I think of
getting together
and laughing
and telling tales
like we did

the brownies
and ice cream
I planned to bring them
never made it

I wonder if
my neglect
caused you to
leave early
