It’ so easy to let time get away from you.
Putting off doing things until ‘tomorrow’ somehow becomes a month from now.
Holding on to hurts and grudges so long you forget what you were upset about.
Having a wide circle of ever growing family that you kinow nothing about.
I’m sad that it took the passing of a loved family member to bring such things to light.
Wishing I could have said goodbye, that hurts.
Thinking maybe he didn’t know I cared, that hurts.
Not knowing who else I might miss, that hurts.
No going back to change things, that’s a fact.
But maybe in honor of my dear great uncle,
I can promise to do better by my lost family.
I can take the first steps;
I will hold out my hand;
I will send out love.
