She's so Gone

December 7, 2011
standing at the side of her bed
holding her hand as she breathes
softly and slowly
until she doesn't breath at all
and lets me break into tears
gripping her hand tighter
then kiss her goodbye
on her cold pale cheek
slowly wipe the tears from my face
then walk away
the pain keeps piercing my heart
when I look at her
the thought that I
let her slip away
made me want to believe that I was the worst daughter
on earth but also the thought of how she and I would meet again be together once more on earth

you wrote about what some people never talk about... or even think about it's beautiful.. because when death comes you can't be to specific.
