You Don't Know What You've Got Till It's Gone

I didn't get to see her
Even for the very last time
I was too late, I was too slow
And now she is gone
She is no more

I wish I could turn the clock
And see her more often as I could
But regrets are all I have in me
But if I can change things, I would

I should have seen the signs
I should have been more loving
I should have been more kind
Because I had no other, but her

No tears are pouring down my cheek
It's pointless
It won't bring her back to me
I can't cry enough inside
All I can do is pray for her journey

God, keep her safe
Let her be amongst the good
Forgive her sins, I pray for her
I pray for my beloved grandmother

    yes, i wrote this poem. i just woke up and i kept thinking of my grandmother and how i regret not showing her that i loved her. and i thought of Cinderella's song 'Don't Know What You've Got Till It's Gone' and how true it is, because i didn't appreciate her until now that she's gone, and i can't do anything about it (Report) Reply

It is very nice to think
The world is full of meat and drink,
With little children saying grace
In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
