May 21, 1998

 

I saw you on the road that day

after too long a time in traffic

and didnt slow, though many did

hence my oft cursed delay

passing by you slowly

I saw you there with your blanket

and regretted your passing

I had lost but a brief span of minutes

you had lost your remainder of years

 


 

Drove by an accident last fall on the 401.  Saw

the body laying flat with a sheet over the face

and regretted my earlier impatience.
