Old age finally caught up 
I watched as you withered
I could see your life wind up
And I dithered

Knowing death was forthcoming
I found it hard to come by
To watch you succumbing
I am not a tough guy

And now I am beset
With feelings of regret
Because I did not take the time
To visit more during your lifetime
