A poem – 15 minutes – If I knew then

My mother was the most lovely lady in the world. Kind, corageous and loving. She passed away last year after a terrible illness. Her funeral was a year ago yesterday. Mum this is for you. God bless x………………………………….

If I knew then what I know now , I wouldn’t waste a breath. I’d hold those moments in my heart, I’d show you more not less.

If I knew then what I know now, I’d change it for the good, you showed me in our happy days, but I never understood.

Time’s a thief, it steals our hearts and never let’s us find, those times again, those days gone by in joy and harmony.

If I knew then what I know now my breath would sweetly say, be gentle oh my dearest Mum, let’s cherish every day.

For we are but a moment past, a brief swell on the sea. For we my love will soon be done and I’ll return to thee.
