If I Had You For Just One More Day (A Poem)Posted: July 25, 2008
If I Had You For Just One More Day
I would love you, for everything you give me.
I wouldn’t complain about stupid little things.
I would appreciate you, and not take you for granted.
But it is too late now. You are gone. Suddenly. Ripped from me, with no warning.
And all I can do now is smile at the memories, as I walk along the empty sidewalks, alone with my memories.
Uh-oh. I said memories twice. Well, I guess there are a lot of memories.
Because you are gone.
Taken from me.
If I had you for just one more day, I would open that automatic savings account and take out a certain amount from each paycheck and put it in the bank, because, wow, I really miss not earning any money now and I can see how I should have been doing that all along. That was really stupid. Oh well!
If I had you for just one more day …
My job. I miss you.
