I knew that you were leaving,
And that very soon you would be gone.
I just didn't know
How soon it would come.
And then you left,
But I never got to really
Say goodbye.
So I love you
And I miss you.
I just wish
We'd had more time.
But I will go on.
I will to continue to live
With my grief and loss.
But I will forever care
For your rose.

The author's comments:
This is for my Uncle Vince, who passed away in 2006. And for Aunt Mimi, who moved away after he died. I miss you both very dearly.
