The Sad Poem

When you’re 28 life should be new

Not broken down and all askew

 Chris should be asking my dad for my hand

But today however, that is not the plan

At breakfast this morning conversation is off

My dad sits down with Chris to talk

My dad asks Chris to be a pal bearer

How did my life get flipped

upside down into terror

When you’re 28 life should be new

Not broken down and all askew

Mom should be with me picking out a wedding dress

Telling me what she thinks looks best

But here I am left alone

Instead to pick out a casket and a headstone

We should be shopping for what she wears on my wedding day

Instead I’m in her closet and she’s not here to have a say

How do I pick out an outfit for her visitation

The last time she’s seen for any occasion

When you’re 28 life should be new

Not broken down and all askew

Mom should be here seeing the birth of my first born

but here I am in tears left alone to mourn

She will never see me buy my first home

or watch me brush my daughters hair with a comb

I can’t help but think all the things she will miss

if only I had more time to give her one more kiss

When you’re 28 life should be new

Not broken down and all askew
