Sickness & Death
I saw you lying there.
And all I could do was cry and stare.
You were always so beautiful, but by the time I saw you,
you were slightly yellow and screaming in pain.
I never wanted to see you this way but I had to be by your side.
Seeing you lie there struggling for breath made me want to leave,
but I knew that would be the last time I would ever see you again,
so I stayed.
