Im Here

I used to cry everynight when i thought about it.
All of us gathered around him,
My mom was praying now, speaking directly to God.
Beeping and Blinking was his world now, run by the machines.
I looked at him, and he looked at me.
What used to be, is no more. Doctors running, no more beeping.
He fades into our memories now, only to haunt me forever.
