    If I haven't said it before (my memory is terrible and you have written quite a few poems lol) Welcome to our little poetry community - a place where you can read and showcase poems and interact with other like minded people. A great place to hone your skills and comment on poetry and receive comments back on your own. There are discussion forums and you can enter free poetry competitions too..

    I enjoyed this poem it is longer than I would normally like to read but it is compelling. It gives a warning of the perils of lost relationships with family in particular the regret of loss of opportunity to make up again and time wasted being apart. Something that is nearly always regretted in the end. A warning for others perhaps not to leave it too long before contacting family after an estrangement. Best wishes Milly
