I Meant To

by Regina Gale

I should have been more sensitive
When I saw you were alone
I meant to, but I forgot to
I was so busy with my life and my home
I meant to call and see how you were doing
But I did not stop to make the call
I meant to stop over for a visit
But I did not carve out the time to take the ride
I meant to have you come for dinner
But I forgot to offer the invite

I forgot how lonely one can be 
When there is no one that cares in sight
I meant to is such a poor excuse for
What should happen to someone
You care about
They should never be alone
There's no need to be alone
I meant to say this very thing to remind myself that I 
Must always do the things I meant to do
