Left Behind

In memory of an uncle who lived, and loved so well…

You always had more to give

Even when you were already running on low

It amazed me how you served others

Your selflessness overflows

And one day, you left us

And all I have is regrets

For all he insufficiencies i treated you with,

Not enough time

Not enough money

Not enough attention

Not enough care

Not enough conversations

Not enough love.

I see your fotos

And i just truly miss you.

They say that life is short

Death is inevitable

Etc, etc.

Words don’t soothe the pain in one’s heart though

Nor the deep regrets.

There is no undoing for my selfishness.

This pain is my consequence.
