I Didn’t Know

I didn’t know that I’d be gone today
I’m sorry that I didn’t tell you I love you
Meant to call you every day
Reach out to you and make contact
I didn’t KNOW that I was dying
I didn’t know that I’d be gone TODAY
I’m watching as your tears shed
Misery loves company and I’m right here
Regretful of the disconnection that occurred
I didn’t know that I was dying
I didn’t know that I’d be gone today
I’m wishing a do over of this ending
Thought we had forever
To make these matters right
I didn’t know that I was dying
But it happened on this day
And I have no words of solace to pass your way
Because I too am grieving
The things that I did not do
I didn’t know that I was dying
For most we never do

  1. Wow! This is exactly what I needed to see, for real. My shins father passed ALMOST six months ago. My son and his sister on his dad’s side are real close and they both are having a hard time grieving and for lack of a better phrase ~ getting over the hump. This may help them I don’t know. I’m debating on whether or not to give it to them.
    Thank you for this it helped me as well!
