One Day Too Late
By: Mel Stubbs
© 2006

I stand in an empty room,
The one where you would sleep,
As I wipe off my cheek.
I try to imagine, the way that it could be,
The way I pictured it in my head
A little baby bed, pushed up against the wall,
And little pictures of animals.

But all that is missing is you,
Wishing our dreams would come true,
Hoping that our lives would change for a lifetime.
It seems like the pain never ends,
And another day begins like all the rest.
Making your birthday,
One day too late.

Dust begins to gather,
In the place where your toys would be,
so I wipe it clean.
And I wonder, would you like your room in pink,
Or maybe it should be blue,
With a little pooh, pushed up against the wall,
With little pictures of animals.


I can see you in the bed,
I can see you walking out the door
I can see you on your graduation day.
I can see you walk down the isle.
I can see your first born baby?s smile
I?ve seen it all a thousand times.
