Pick up the phone to speak to the dead,
to say all the things that we should have said;
to take back the chances to show them our love;
the time we had with them just wasn't enough.
Celebrate equally good points and bad,
the habits and quirks that drove you mad.
Talk to them now with a smile on your face
and fondly recall what you cannot replace.
For Tim C, Grandma and Granddad.
