Ode to a Special Person


Just because I wasn't there,
It doesn't mean I didn't care.
In thought, in memory, every day,
As if you never went away.

I may have seemed distracted some,
A worker, friend, a person, mum,
With lots to do, deadlines meeting, 
 Our precious moments, all so fleeting.

But in my heart, I carried deep,
A thought of you I'd always keep,
A smile, a look, something you'd said,
A beautiful picture inside my head.

I'd think of you constantly every day,
And always wonder, what would you say?
I'd bring up my children with values we'd shared,
And always remind them how much you cared.

There's never the time, life is too short,
To do all the things we know we ought, 
But I keep you safe in my heart still, 
I always have and I always will.
