Guilt

Your final minutes,
and I wasn’t there
to rub your back
and stroke your hair.

I miss your voice,
its gentle lilt,
I miss the world
that we built.

Where are you, love?
I am right here.
I hope at the end
you felt no fear.

Come find me, love,
in my dreams tonight.
I’ll breathe your name
’til morning light.

I’ll trace your name
in foggy breath
on windowpanes
’til nothing’s left.

Your final minutes,
and I wasn’t there.
I wish you’d known
how much I care.

  1. I am deeply sorry for you loss and grieve of the good friend. It is not going to be easy but know that there are others here helping to the best of their abilities to do so.

    • Thank you for saying so. You’re certainly right. I really appreciate the supportive community on WordPress and everyone in my life who has been letting me lean on them.
