My Regrets

My Regrets

A Poem by Josie E. Cook M. A.
"

Yesterday, I learned on Facebook that my Aunt Sharon had passed away due to complications with the flu~

"

My Regrets

Your cell number was passed to me

On tiny slip of paper,

I stashed it away inside small-carved wooden box

Forgetting until I learned the news that you had passed.

Overcome with my regret,

My fingers itched to retrieve that slip of paper,

And dial your number...

Just to see what would happen.

 

However, I never found the courage to do so

Because the hurt inside me is too great

To overcome and I fear the time that has passed.

 

If you were here, I would tell you how much I

Wished that we had connected before the allotted

Time expired and took you away for good.

 

You will be missed because your kind and giving soul

Was a treasure here on Earth.

I know you have your wings now

To set you free to do more well deeded

Work for all,

Since you were too sweet for this

Atmosphere surrounding us down here.

 

Just know that I will indeed miss you

And long for the day when we meet again

Where everything is bright and special

And the darkness is kept at bay

By special beings like you!

“In loving memory,

For my Aunt Sharon Randall”

Josie, this is a beautiful tribute for your wonderful Aunt Sharon. I am sorry for your loss. Unfortunately, it seems we all have regrets in situations like this, but the good things will always rise to the top for that is where the best memories are kept.

Once again, I am so sorry for your loss. You are in my thoughts.

Thanks! She was a dear person with a giving soul.
This is truly beautiful.
It makes me think of how my sister must feel right now since my mom passed away. She never tried to mend things with my mom, and now it is far too late.
You did an excellent job with this poem, and I am so very sorry for your loss.
