It’s the “what if’s”

And “If only’s”

That causes our sleepless nights


What if the doctors had listened

Had given weight to his claims of pain


If only we had known sooner

Had realized how time would fly so quickly


Yes, it’s the “what if’s”

And “if only’s”

That flicker through our minds

In honor of my Papa who passed away last year, January 14th, I will be re-posting my grief poems in the hopes that those who read these poems know that they are not alone and that our loved ones are not forgotten.
