A Death and Remembrance Poem: I Told You So

That 4-Word Exclamation in a sullen piece….

Not one for always winning the argument

but I really wish I did with Richard.

He said and reiterated,

time and again,

he would die young.

Each time, I countered

with a passion,

in compassion.

Well, one November day, he went.

To say his demise hit hard

is undeniable- and I hated

that I didn’t win

that damn argument- I was wrong!

Long after being interred,

I hear him say, “I told you so-

but I love you though”.
