I'm looking for a lovely poem that I heard at a funeral.
I think it's called reflections and the verses in in go something along the lines of ' I'm sorry I left you, .... it wasn't my intention.

Thanx for any help u can give - i've searched everywhere.

    i DONT KNOW IF YOU ARE STILL LOOKING FOR REFLECTIONS BUT IT WAS ON THE ORDER OF SERVICE OF A FUNERAL i ATTENDED RECENTLY, where the young man had taken his own life, it goes

    Another day to wonder
    Another day to mourn
    It wasnt my intention to go before the dawn.
    The pain was deep within my heart
    And in my troubled head, .
    It wasnt my intention
    to go without words being said

    My frame of mind seemed normal,
    Or so I heard them say
    It wasnt my intention not to see another day.
    I did not mean for you to suffer
    Nor cause you so much pain
    It wasnt my intention
    To never see you again.

    Despair and confusion left
    My aching mind unsure.
    It wasnt my intention
    To suddenly close life's door.
    If only I could give you reasons,
    And brush your tears away.
    It wasnt my intention
    To leave and not to stay.

    I did not mean for you all to grieve
    Now left alone to cry
    It wasnt my intention to leave you askimg
    Why.
