Wishing for another chance
Once Again

Just once more I’d like to see your face,
The roundness, the wrinkles, the smile.

Just once more I’d like to hear your voice,
Describing to me another story.

Just once more I’d like to smell your cooking,
The onions, turnips, potatoes and spices.

Just once more I’d like to rub your back,
Massaging out the knots in your neck.

Just once more I’d like to wash your feet,
Putting lotion on your cracked heels.

Just once more I’d like to help you up,
While you put your arms around my neck.

Just once more I’d like to be with you;
Talking, laughing, listening, crying.

Just once more I’d like to hold your hand,
Whispering softly “I love you."
