This is wonderful tanka goldenlangur.

I remember on this one. it is deep and touching. That hurts a lot when you know that there is something unsaid. Always say all that what you feel, because as you wrote in your poem, it could be late.

 

Wonderful expressed and very provoking

I agree with Alek, GL:

Always say all that what you feel, because as you wrote in your poem, it could be late.

When it comes to our loved ones, life is too short to leave important words unsaid/unwritten.

Thank you very much Aleksandra and Tony,

 

Aleksandra - yes, I wrote this tanka last year and tweaked it a bit. I'm so glad that you remembered it icon_smile.gif

 

Tony - both you and Aleksandra are right. Alas, we often leave it too late.

 

I appreciate your reading this and posting your thoughtful comments.
