She is Gone

Lost and FoundI remember my shallow expressions of hope
from the last days of her life.
Each word she spoke, each mood she shared,
I didn’t expect while I was waiting.

In the past, we grew apart.
Time did not heal the broken bonds.
Once I learned of her illness,
my pride fell and I tried to amend.

The days we were together were strained.
I am sorry for the wrongs I did her.
Her earlier life is what I truly missed.
Time passes slowly now that she is gone.
