'Sorry I Wasn'T There' - Poem by Linda Winchell

I'm sorry I wasn't always there
To lighten every carried heavy burden.
To maybe wash away your tears of pain
Remove that vail of life's dark and drawn curtain.

To hold and rock you when needed in my arms
Tell you everythings going to be alright.
To sit beside your bed and pray
At the hospital that last pain-filled night.

I tried to be the best I could for you
While you were in my life.
Asking God to spare taking you from me
Taking you, from me your loving wife.

Hope you knew how much that I loved you
Even if we didn't get to say our last, 'Goodbye.'
But know my dear you will always live in my heart
Until I am with you one day by your side.
