It’s hard to watch,
You as you slowly wither away.
The sounds of the cries,
I hear are those of pain and agony.
They pierce the stillness of the air.
I wish there was a way to make them stop.
I would love to make the pain go away.
But I, a mere human, cannot do such a thing.
All we can do is release you into the hands of God.
And allow him to do as he pleases.
Even though it will hurt me so bad.
I can’t let you go not now,
But I know that I must as hard as it may be.
In my heart you will stay for eternity.
Before you go know that,
I'll always love you, mom.
And will for eternity.
