Will You Take An IOU?

What can I do

I have spent all I have

Not a drop left in me

To offer you payment

For the time that you took

To listen to my lament

I was so alone today

And knew no hope

I cried

I slept

I felt regret

About a day long past

But never forgotten

You saw me through

And guided me to

A place of acceptance

These 24 hours have almost passed

I can hide the memories for another year

Until the day blindsides me

And I am again forced to remember

I couldn’t stop your death
