    I Meant To

    You died yesterday morning.
    I meant to come and see you;
    tell you how much I loved you
    for the dear friend you became.

    Meant to tell you that
    what goes around really does
    come back around in our lifetimes
    no matter how far we go.

    I remember back to when
    I was a child laying all curled up
    like a ball, trying to hide
    from your vicious fists and words.

    I remember running home,
    everyday a new way just to stay
    out of your reach or within
    calling distance of some help.

    I remember our later meeting
    when you told me you would
    kick my ass if I hurt my man.
    Like it was any of your business.

    I remember when I found out why
    you behaved as you did to me
    and when you learned it was all
    because of a lie, we laughed
    till we cried.

    I forgave you and you told me
    you did not deserve it, but I did
    forgive you and we became friends
    the way I had originally intended.

    But over the years we fell out of touch
    and I did mean to come see you,
    now I will but it will be for the last time
    and my heart aches for my loss.

    Nevermind my loss...
    how about your children
    my eyes weep at the injustice of it all
    and I wish for another chance.

    Chance to know you
    and be the friends
    we were meant to be.
    All my Life I will forever
    mourn the loss of you.

    Mysty....this is a tearjerker...so sad...it resonates with all humans because of our "tomorrow I will do it" mentality...we live daily with the feeling of having all the time in the world...though knowing full well that life is fleeting and delicate and tremulously balanced...

    and I wish for another chance.

    Chance to know you
    and be the friends
    we were meant to be.
    All my Life I will forever
    mourn the loss of you.


    How many have not had the same thoughts running through their minds at a funeral...I know I did at my grandma's...there cannot EVER be enough time spent with family and friends...never.

    Thanks for writing this beautiful "last word of love"

    Thank You Nomad..... She is a girl I grew up with .... and we became friends later.. rather than sooner.. She finally became the woman she wanted to be..... without her criminal minded brothers or mother around her. She raised 3 beautiful daughters and .... I know I shall miss her very much. Her funeral is this saturday coming up.. I have to get off work for it. She was only 46 years old.. and cancer got her. Thank You for reading hon.

    Love Mysty

    I'm so sorry for your loss(hugs)
    This is a good example of the saying,
    "we should tell them we love them today
    because there is no tomorrow." That saying is so true.
    Your poem is sad but beautifully expressed.
    You'll never forget but I think the pain will ease some as time goes on.
    Sorry if that upset you. I didn't mean too. I wish you well(hugs)

    Dear Mysty,

    I am so sorry for your loss. I am at a loss for words here. What was already said, yes, I repeat, "tell those you love them today for tomorrow is not promised". This is a must read, a huge life lesson, and I am sure will hit home for many. Despite that, there are many who still say, I will stop by tomorrow, or I will another day...sometimes there may not be that next time, or another day. I am so sorry again for your loss, and thank you for posting this must read. This is going in my favorites now.

    Sorry for your loss
    My dear
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    “She Walks”

    Amongst living waters
    Paths that he wants us to
    Long for
    ~
    Life is full of dark shadows
    Not knowing which ones
    Are following us
    ~
    The bridge
    He uses
    To help us cross over
    To the other side
    ~
    The gift of life
    Is only momentary
    So that we can walk
    The crossroads of life
    Embracing one another
    Letting go of the ones we love
    To walk the paths of
    Gods
    Paradise
    ~
    Looking into
    Gods’ eyes
    We see the reflection
    Of the canvas
    We painted
    With our lives
    ~
    He smiles
    With open arms
    Welcome home
    My loved one
    Job well done

    Dear Arthur,

    Thank You for such a lovely tribute. *hugs*

    Dear Kim,

    Always hon.... and I think the blessing is mutual for both of us *hugs*

    Dear Nomad,

    Yes I believe the girls will be well taken care of. One is getting married this summer. One is already a Mom with two children of her own and the last one is off to college I believe. They are all strong young women... I believe that is the best thing their mother taught them. I too feel for those girls .. I don't know how I will make it through the funeral though. I am a total empath, Emotions hit and I flounder. People think I am strong inside.... but lol I am not. I guess I hide it well. Thank You for Caring hon *hugs*

    Love you all,

    ~Mysty~
