I Can't Let Go

You brought me into this world even though you had a choice, abortion or adoption you were my voice.

You tried to lift my spirits when I felt low, you were the one person I didn't want to let go.

You would try to be there for me but, could not because you were confined to your bed, just the thought of the pain you were feeling comes rushing to my head.

You were sick and would try to fight back, but energy was something that you lacked.

You are my best friend and I want you to know that no matter how hard I try mom, I Can't Let Go.
