Tears of regret

 Her sorrow she could not disguise
As she stood silently, looking down,
 Tears gathered in her eyes
And slowly fell to the ground

That she had not come  to visit him
was one of her deepest regrets
She didn't know his condition was that grim
But now she came to pay her  respects.....
Standing silently at the grave site
Her heart  was   heavy, her spirit contrite

    Such feelings of guilt and regret would be a heavy thing indeed. Very wonderfully expressed.

    Heart-touching and beautiful one, Joseph...so many times we take for granted that 'we have enough time'...I love this.
