    You Said

    You said
    You’d be there,
    Until we were old and gray.

    I said
    I would be too,
    But I let you down.

    You said
    Nothing.
    I assumed that was normal.

    I said
    Nothing.
    It wasn’t for me to utter anything.

    You said
    You’d take care of me.
    I didn’t know you meant it that way.

    I said
    I do.
    I should have said I don’t.

    You said
    You’d be my keeper.
    And you were.

    I silently said
    I hope so.
    And you were.

    I’m not sure what to say anymore.
    Things are so different--
    No one to listen
    And no one to listen to.

    Hi Mo
    What can I say? Sometimes words just do not suffice. I wonder though what you mean when you said "I let you down" I know you were there for your partner. :hug:

    Thanks Flowers -

    This was four different people in my life. I let down the first as they took their own life.
