The night before

July 10, 2010
The night before he can't move.
He can't get up, can't go to his food.
The night before he looks at me with sad eyes.
The night before I cry, knowing he will be gone soon.
The night before I go to sleep with a heavy burden on my heart.
That day I am forced to go to school.
That day I tell my friends that I know hes going to die. That my father is going to put him down.
That day I get home looking for him, hoping that it wasn't true.
That night my father tells me he had a stroke, that he was forced to put him down.
That night I cry missing him more than ever.
This night I am crying as I miss him so.
