letting go


we found out about 2 months ago
something that made me cry
the doctors said you were ill and we were in for a long battle
and through it all you always would say we are going to win this battle
than a few weeks ago
we almost lost you and i was scared to death
you pulled through but it still broke my heart
knowing how much pain you were going through
i felt so helpless wanting to help you so bad
laying in bed at night crying myself to sleep
because i knew we couldn't deny the truth... the end was coming near
it was something i hated to think about
the pain became more and more for you
and each day it became harder for me to know the pain you were going through
one day i talked to you and promised you i would come back
i told you how much i loved you and needed you
when i came back... u weren't there
i was told something that i never wanted to hear
i didn't know how to handel it
you had gone into a coma
i was terrified broke down and cried
then this week the doctor said there was nothing left to do
we have to let go
i cried and i said no please my baby is strong i know he can pull through
the conclusion was made the majority won
last nit we let you go
i was the hardest thing i have ever had to do
the worst feeling of my life
i hate moving on with out you
i know i should be happy becuase you are free of your pain
but i jsut wish we had more time together
and now talkin with your mom and sis it is so hard
especially your sister.. she is to young to understand and asks me all the time where you are. if your sleeping and i don't know what to do but cry

    Your emotions pierce through me...what can one say? I leave with a piece of your emotions and sorrow forever imprinted. Although it hurts it feels as if they let go of so much pain and suffering. Remember death is another form of life and although you may hurt from their departure, they are far from gone... (Report) Reply

    it is hard seeing the light through the window in your mind that you refuse in subline..the proper tempo you reached in a thought that you keep all the time deep inside where you kept him with you..if you are a good gurl you will never refuse him a place in your heart when you sleep thoughts of love all the time missing him there inside....iip (Report) Reply

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
