Grief & Relief

I’m sitting here
Watching you fade away
It doesn’t matter
How much I beg you to stay

You’re slipping
Further into the abyss
Can’t begin to mention
All those things I’ll miss

It’s for the best though
That’s what I have to believe
Once you’re gone
I can start to grieve

I know you’re in pain
I’m in pain too
I’m watching you die
Remembering all we’ve been through

I’ll think of you
The way you used to be
Not you lying here
Waiting to be set free

God bless you
Be sure to save me a place
So when it’s my turn
I’ll see your friendly face

Here I wish to let my strange and vivid imagination and opinions run wild. I do hope you like what you read. I would love to be a writer, I won't pretend otherwise. Although it is only in the last couple of years that I have realised it. I guess if it meant to happen it will. Happy reading, happier writing. :-)
