If I were given a second chance, to have you back with just a glance Could I turn away and let you slumber, whilst I still think and I still wonder Where you are and what you do, all the days when I am blue,
Have you played a part and watched me grow, to become the woman that I know Would I have the strength to resist temptation, or call you back with sweet elation To recapture years lost in time, when you were here and joy was mine,
Am I that selfish but to ask, you to return, complete your task Of being my guardian, my guide, my friend, or else I relent to your will bend Am I that person that won’t respect, your freedom of choice that you be kept
In the arms of creation as now you sit, with love and joy and hope and wit I cannot ask you to return and take from you those things to learn The selfless oath I do repair, that I am here and you are there,
The time we spent was not in vain, but fierce and true despite the pain It is my wish to honour you, and all my life know that I am true And worthy of your sweet repose, whilst you rest – until I close,
I know now that we chose this path, of life and death to cry and laugh And lessons that we oft debate, can only come with love so great So your onward journey I do release, and let you go to be at peace,
And spread your joy from your new abode, until I meet you on that road We’ll make new footprints in the sand, and together we’ll forever stand As once we were, and always will be, an eternal loving bond are we.
It always helps me to express my thoughts and feelings by writing. These offerings aren't necessarily connected with any one thing, although some relate to grief and loss. Some also relate to love, joy and some are just downright daft.
