'She's Gone! '


As I look into her eyes
She just lays there stiff and still
She looks at me as if she wants to say, ”Im not ready to leave”
Her eyes wonder around the room
She can’t stay concentrated on me
She talks but I can’t hear a word she says
It’s like a blur or murmurs
She gags on her food and chokes on her drink
She can’t do what she used to do
Her children can’t look at her
Or even be in the same room with her
Because they can’t seem to look at her in that dying condition
She doesn’t eat for days
She doesn’t drink for days
As everyday goes by she’s dying
Her family awaits her death everyday
But when the last of life was upon her

We left and later on down the road
She was pronounced dead
And all I could think was, “She’s gone! ”

Based on A TRUE STORY! !
