I never noticed

For long you stayed there,
Right in the corner.
I had been amiss,
I never noticed.

You held my burden,
And at times carried me
I never noticed

Through winters and rain,
Through happy times ,and pain.
You were, by my side
I never noticed.

And now you are no longer able,
To be right there,
To carry my burden,
With broken legs, oh table!
I certainly notice that!

Beautiful and meaningful poem. We do tend to take things for granted until they are no longer there for us, don't we? Thanks for sharing.
