Carolyn Brunelle

In Memoriam - Poem by Carolyn Brunelle

'Thank you' died alone today.
A last breath and heart beat
was suffered at the hands of
'gosh I'm sorry, guess I forgot.'

There will be no services
or celebration of life tomorrow;
none would even take the time
or bother with implied sorrow.

Thank You once had a legacy
to Pretense, but stopped caring a lot:

'It was my intent to bless you
so I could leave you better off,
but gosh I'm so sorry,
I guess I just forgot.'
