I was cleaning up documents on my computer the other day and ran across this one. I don’t know where I copied it from…..maybe Facebook or a blog. It prompt my thought on yesterday’s post, Thinking for 2, Speaking for 2, Doing for 2 ….I think you will understand why.
Can’t you see her tender heart breaking as she rolls the chair away.
All of their needs put first and her needs thrown away.
One day it will be too late for their apologies, too late for I love you
Our loved ones go by so quickly
And tomorrow she may be gone
Someday it may be you….sitting
In a far off nursing home.
She sits there alone daily
Just wishing for someone
To take the time from their busy day
But night falls and there are none.
Time goes by so very slowly
For she goes through another day
Because she’s old and feeble
Is this the price she must pay?
Her shoulders are a little slumped now and her back a little bent.
The last time that I talked to you
I wish I would have known.
I would have said I love you,
and kept you on the phone.
If I only had five minutes,
the morning you passed away,
I’d give you one last hug so tight and see your great big smile.
I’d tell you that I don’t think I could live without you,
not even for awhile.
I’d kiss your cheek and take your hand and tell you it’s okay to go
And tell you that I’ll miss you,
more than you’ll ever know.
Now all we have is memories.
And your picture in a frame.
