Author Billy Charles Root: One More


Here I sit, though it’s too late

Praying To mend this Heart break

Regretting that I never took the chance

To take your hand in one more Dance

To hold you close and not let go

Just one more chance for our friendship to grow

One more laugh till our stomach hurts

Maybe just one more encouraging word

One more slow walk down the beach

One more shot at the lessons you tried to teach

One more breakfast, one more dinner, one more lazy day

One more chance at the words I knew I Should say

One more movie, one more game, one more chance to stay the same

One more picture, one more smile

I know just one more, would last me quite a while

One more touch, one more kiss

One more hug, that’s what I will miss

One more walk, I don’t care where

One more talk about the dreams we share

One more ride or maybe a stroll

One more no particular place to go

One more morning on the porch

Just one more Flame in this life’s torch

One more prayer to help me through

Just one more chance to say,

I love you
