Patches by Deanna


I wish you could hear me now.
I wanted to hold you for one last time.
You slept with me most of your last night.
I looked at you with such delight.
Your beautiful nose and mouth so bright.
I wanted to kiss you before I left.
I did give you a pat on your head.
You only know if we have treated you right.
I know in my heart you are safe now tonight.
I wish I could turn back the hands of time.
You have left us now and into the light.
