Last Day

by Debbie Gemmill

Today is the fourteenth annivesary of my son's death. I wanted to share this with you.

Reprinted with permission

Oh little one
if I had known
it was to be
our last day together
I would have done it all
differently.
I would have taken you
to the beach to hear the waves
and to the mountains
to feel the snow.
I would have shown you
rainbows and
Christmas trees
and ferris wheels.

Or maybe
I would have done
exactly what I did.

Sing you to sleep
tuck you in with Teddy
and whisper goodnight.

Debbie Gemmill,
in memory of Tyler Dean Gemmill, October 22, 1981-May 25, 1982
