I Thought We’d Have More Time

by 50djohnson



I don’t know why I have to keep learning this same lesson over and over.  Having someone you love die suddenly makes you ask yourself the question,” Why didn’t I tell them how I felt?” The answer is because I thought I’d have more time“. Nothing is further from the truth. All we are guaranteed is now.

Proverbs 3: 27 ” Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due, when it is in your power to act.”

Proverbs 39:5 ” Everyone is but a breath . Even those who seem secure.”


Wishing I’d told you,  your smile lights up a room

But you already knew that, I casually assumed.

Not showing you or telling you, wouldn’t be a crime,

Obviously, I thought we’d have more time.

Wishing  I’d told you,  you had a heart of gold,

The day God made you, He surely broke the mold.

You’re the one to whom I turned, a friend paradigm.

Bewildered, I thought we’d have more time.

Wishing I’d told you, you were love as it should be

Giving all you had to give, so that I would surely see.

Loving unconditionally,  was love so sublime

Lost without you, I thought we’d have more time.

Wishing I’d shared with you, you were all I hoped to be

Creative, gifted, and sincere, living as one who’s free.

Having had  many wonderful talks, they stopped upon a dime.

Now too late, I thought we’d have more time.

Winter has turned to Springtime, right before my very eyes,

Blessings too many to count, no matter how hard one tries,

Seeing the pain you’re hiding, I helped you as you climbed,

Letting go suddenly, I thought we’d have more time.
