You Know Who You Are! - Poem by Terry Donovan

I didn't see you when you died,
I never worried, never cried.
Like all around, I didn't know
(Like you did) you were set to go.

I didn't hear them sing and pray
As you were slowly rolled away,
I wasn't there to read a rhyme
Or join in tea-and-biscuits time.

But I was there to talk to you
Where trees grew tall and bluebells grew.
We sat together for a while,
Unwound and made each other smile.

We knew your time on earth was done
And, scattered where the squirrels run,
You've just become a memory,
The same way you remember me.

And are you watching as I write?
You used to and you still well might.
I didn't see you when you died.
That's why you're always at my side.
