I lost my father a long time ago
A big tough man he appeared to be
Never once did he lay his hand upon me
But upon his death, I didn’t cry
Although I thought I understood why.
I lost my mother not long after that
A loving and caring women was she
Who I loved as much as any son should
But upon her death, I didn’t cry
To this day I don’t understand why.
I lost my wife just four weeks ago
Over thirty years of love and marriage
No love above hers could I imagine
Weeks after her death I couldn’t stop crying
Because upon her death, I didn’t cry.
My life's journey's end is very near
My body is old with nothing more to give
Failures and successes I cannot relive
My memories replayed before I die
My one great regret, I didn't cry.
