In Time

I would settle for just one more smile

For one more dinner-for-two

I would settle for anything really
for just a little more time with you


For your arms and your comfort

For messing your hair

For your breakfasts-in-bed

And just having you there


If I could just have a second

Just a minute at most

Even just conversation

Over coffee and toast


Iím going to miss you

This much I know

But also with this

Iím letting you go


As I stand here with my poem

I speak my soul today

For the person who I loved

In every single way


I still wear your clothes for your smell

I sit in your chair to feel near

And I know that whatever may happen

For you I will always care


Raise your glass for the one who was special

Whose smile did light up a room

Let us remember the one who was taken

From our lives, much too soon


Hereís to your memory

To everything you were

And letís put our heads together

And for cancer find a cure.

So very sad yet wonderfully worded, and I agree whole heartedly with the last stanza.
