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
