breath

A Poem by michelle bailey
"

the pain of unanswered questions in someone's final hour

"
With her final breath, quietness now surrounds
I'm unable to see, in my torrent of tears I've drowned
This is the end, but how I wished it would continue
Then the 'I'm sorry', 'why did you hurt me' I can say to you
I'd inquire if you knew you could of changed things
But with your final breath- silence is the only answer you bring
I'd say 'you know what- I wish you could see me now'
Would you have done things different, some way, some how
But as I watch you breathe your final last breath
My answers have now gone- as I embrace your death
It's too late now, could I really have really been unkind
That on your deathbed, the answers I want to find
Would I feel guilty- should I let peace flow
But I look in your eyes and your true emotion is on show
There's so many things I wish I could have said
But it's too late now, as you lie on your deathbed
I hold your hand and think of the past
Knowing this hour is now finally your last
I'm sorry for the chance I let slip away
As the hurt you caused me-in my heart will now stay
