Another chance

by Brenda   Oct 15, 2017


I wish I had
another chance
to say good-bye-
I would tell you
that I loved you
and all the reasons why...
-
I'd count the ways
I have missed you so-
carefully explaining
each and every one,
for I wouldn't want
you to miss
a single word
of what you've meant to me...
-
Second chances can
be telling-
they'll give my
heart away.
All the moments
of silence
I've endured since
you've went away.
The hurt, the pain
of missing you so...
-
You were my world-
we were so inter-twined
I didn't realize it
at the time-
now that you are gone
I long for your presence
in my life-
missing you so-
just wishing
I had one more chance...

    When I read this poem for the first time, I understood this poem in a completely different way.
    Thanks to you.
    I do agree we all want an another chance with someone very dear to us.
    Though most of us don't get it.
    And those who get, I guess they are the fortunate ones.
    I admire your poems, Brenda.

      That's the best thing about poetry. It can be read so many different ways. It's bittersweet, my step dad died from cancer, He lived for 3 months after his diagnosis. We had the chance to say goodbye to him. It still sucked. We knew he was dying, he knew he was dying so you were trying to get as much of him before that happened. My dad died in an helicopter accident. There wasn't that last chance, he just never came home. Thank you for your kind thoughts.
