Ann Odger

(Tunbridge Wells, Kent, UK)


I sat and watched you in your sleep
and held your hand afraid to move
the time was close when I would weep
the last things said were words of love.
The final sigh, your breath was gone
I could not move nor wish to leave,
you were my life my dearest John,
why did you leave me now to grieve?
I could not sleep, the pain too strong
