How Grateful I Would Be To Have Just One More Day

If I could have just one more day and wishes did come true
I’d spend every glorious moment side by side with you.
Recalling all the years we shared and memories we made
How grateful I would be to have just one more day.
Where the tears I’ve shed are not in vain and only fall in bliss
So many things I’d let you know about the days you’ve missed.
I wouldn’t have to make pretend you never went away
How grateful I would be to have just one more day.
When that day came to a close and the sun began to set
A million times I’d let you know I never will forget.
The heart of gold you left behind when you entered Heaven’s gate.
How grateful I would be to have just one more day.


Beautiful words. We all wish for one more day its true what they say you don’t know want your got till its gone.


It’s coming up for one year since I lost the love of my life, but it feels like yesterday.
I still can’t believe it.


Dear sad2

Thank you so much for sharing this poem. So many people here are suffering in similar circumstances. Loss is hard, takes years to get over, it changes everything. It’s seismic.

So please continue to reach out on here. We are all here for you.

best wishes


Truest words ever written. My friend and I used to go out together every Wed and moan about all the little things our husband’s did that annoyed us.
Now we would both give anything to have our husband’s back!


One more day indeed and then another and another and another etc. One more day would never be enough but it would allow us to say all the things which were left unsaid; which brings to mind the saying:

If I knew the last time I kissed you was the last time then I never would have stopped. :heart:


Oh Sheila, how I understand every word… It’s heartbreaking every single day, isn’t it? :heart:


Beautiful thankyou annie
