If I Would Have Known

If I would have known you wouldn’t be here I would have stopped worrying about the small stuff I would have held you tighter and said “I love you “more often If I would have known you wouldn’t be here We would have had your celebration of life party a weekend earlier If I would have known you wouldn’t be here I would have locked the doors and kept everyone out of our house People say time heals all wounds however, these wounds still hurt People say you are pain-free however, we could have controlled your pain I am happy you are in heaven with your family that left before you I am overjoyed that your cancer is gone and you are a healthy man I am thankful for every second, every moment, every day we spent together Guess what else? I am mad I am sad; defeated because we couldn’t save you And yet I know you are with God and that death is an amazing part of life You are saved, you are whole, and you are still you I miss and love you baby Simplemente Gracias Ismael Carl Rodriguez 03/08/'64-07/04/'20 Written on 10/25/2021
