In Another World

Post by Scott »

I wrote this today:


---


In another world we grew wrinkled and old
together
But that world isn't this one

In another world we had kids
together
But that world isn't this one

In another world we held hands
at our baby's high school graduation
together
But that world isn't this one

In another world you sat by me
in the hospital
together
But that world isn't this one

And in that world and in that hospital bed,
your smile was the last thing I
ever saw
But that world isn't this one.

I found this poem incredibly moving. I could almost see the pain on the poet’s face penning this down. Beautifully written
