Untimely Regrets

Regrets of a daughter

I regret never have

known him when I was a child

like the father he is today

I regret the drifting sands

Of time missing out

On so much opportunity

to embrace our relationship, our friendship

I regret not saying

The words I should have

As a daughter to a father

Saying “thank you”

just I love you dad for all you have given me

and the love you have shown

I regret now

there is little time left

before he knows me no more

I regret to say

Day by day another fragment

of time is lost into the black space in your mind

Never to be found, except in pictures

I regret not finding

the time to embrace


your laughter

your quirkiness

what is left

I regret just

Not saying I love you

So he knows
