It's been a while...

It's been a while since I last saw you,

touched your face and heard your laugh

or sat in a dinky seat while we sewed some seed.

It's been a while since we last spoke

about anything and everything and even the small things,

or about a new adventure that would take us high in the sky.

It's been a while since we danced

at a party, a celebration or just in the living room

after one or five gins... I never counted, nor did you.

It's been a while since I rode shotgun

while you took the wheel and I opened gates

or sat in the right seat of your pride and joy at 2,000 feet.

It's been a while since we had a cup of tea

with a homemade biscuit and a good yarn

full of plans for the day ahead.

It's been a while since our feet hit the ground

together, side by side.... there was never a dull moment

when you were around.

It's been a while and far too long since you left me to tackle this world on my own.

It's been a while since our last goodbye, goodnight and hello.

It's been a while since everything...

If you have a person let them know, don't wait until another day passes.

Tell them you love them, have that cup of tea, a yarn and dance in your living room

like it's your last chance.

Live with no regrets because one day it could have 'been a while'.
