Too Busy - Poem by Theresa Ann Moore

Excuses are never in low supply
Sorry, I did not call you
I could not find the time
I had a thousand things to do

Heard you were not feeling well
Meant to send a card the other day
Went shopping to buy a pair of shoes
Had several appointments…what can I say?

Got an invitation to go to dinner party
I looked around but did not see you there
Saw a mutual friend and inquired about you
Oh poor soul… she fell down the stairs…

I must call or visit… I promptly blurted
Our friend said, I have something more to say
Her injuries were quite severe and deadly
Unfortunately she passed away just yesterday

    Very well put, Theresa. We are all guilty of exactly that - procrastination!
    Thanks for the reminder that it can easily be too late. A '10'!
