last goodbye

Sweet darling of mine
Watching you suffer every day brings me pain
I can see it in your eyes
You want to let go and die
As you fight your illness
With a smile on your face
Preparing to go to a better place
Tears fill my eyes
I often ponder if this will be the day, I say
The Gentle touch of your hand
On mine
Let’s me know everything’s alright
You take your final breath
I watch you peacefully go
Into Heavens door
We gather around you
As we greave
Tears flow from my eyes
I feel a pain
Feeling isolated from the rest
I start to feel a sickness
Run from every part and vain in my body
But in the stillness of the quite
I feel your presence
your hand touching me again
what feels like
you are wiping each tear from the crease of my eye’s
With each day that goes
I find myself feeling stronger
Your memories linger in my brain
From every laugh and enjoyable moment, we had
Tears fill my eyes of joy  
Now it’s time for me to let you go
Spread Your joy to everyone
As you did for me
I hope Heaven knows they have an angel
That is special, indeed!
