It Didn’t Ask Me

goodbye

How dare time not stop for a moment!

It didn’t ask me

if it could continue

to tick like it had somewhere to go

It didn’t ask me

if I wanted

just one more moment to smile at him

It didn’t ask me

if I needed

one more minute to give my last advice

It didn’t ask me

if I yearned

for just one more hug

from the baby I could still see in his eyes

It didn’t ask me

if I longed

to relive those 20 blessed years

It didn’t ask me

and kept ticking
