I wish for nothing more
Than just one more day,
For I would give it all,
Just to hear her say.

It's funny how
In life it seems
You take for granted
The most important things.

To feel her close,
And be safe again,
Safe from my own self,
Back with my best friend.

Yes, she was the best,
And at other times the only,
My Friend, you left me here,
And now my heart is lonely.

If you could just come back,
If only for one day,
I'd make sure that I'd listen
To all you had to say.

And now that it's too late,
You cannot speak anymore.
I finally realized,
I should have heard you before.

And if I could do it over,
I'd only change one thing,
I'd tell you that I love you,
And how much joy to me you bring.

No one will ever know
Quite how I feel inside,
And on that day you left,
You weren't the only one who died.

You have always been there, Mom,
And you loved me 'til the end,
So with all my heart and soul,
I love you too, My Friend.

Pale and weedy
Dark and weedy
Rift and sift with every breeze

Grow so fast but never ready
Indetermination shows
Indiscriminate, he mows

One more day and I'll have this figured out.
One more day of grass
bruising the sky with shadows,
one more day of gentle memories lost,
one more day of wasps building homes underground.
Sunlight is a slow paintbrush, too fine, too often abandoning
the labyrinths of unremarked detours, always wanting one more day
with its shifting indifferent canvas.

One more day, my friend,
And grass we once were roving
Will be tall again.

Sorry for this little attempt of a haiku.
And it's sad...like your photo.
