Regret

When it's time to say goodbye
I will miss my dad the most
because I never found the courage
to tell him how much I love him

I' ll ask for their forgiveness,
in my thoughts, and
will tell them that I am tired,
very tired,
that I need to sleep
for a very very long time.

PS. (11:50 p.m.) I slept for an hour after writing the above poem, not a very very long time, and then played an hour of tennis. I felt much better after that, and half an hour ago I called my dad in Iran and told him how much I love him, and forced him to tell me that he loves me :) This item is off my list.
