Leaving You, Forever - Poem by Dazza Reason

I’ll close my eyes for one last time,
My life begins to fade.
I see you standing by our bed,
where for the last two days, you’ve stayed.

And for sixty years, you’ve been at my side,
through the troubles and the strife.
I couldn’t have loved another as much,
as you, my darling wife.

But the years, they had more joyous times,
and our children, now fully grown.
The family complete, and here with us,
l leave you, not alone.

You’re holding my hand, your gentle touch,
as it was when we first met.
But now my life, it ebbs away
Our final sun will set.

As my eyelids drop, and darkness falls,
In my mind, I see your face.
My final thought, is of you, my dear,
As I feel your last embrace.

Your soft kiss, I feel on my lips,
A tear, falls on my cheek.
I want to hold you, one last time,
But my muscles, now getting weak.

I can hear no sounds, it’s time to go,
My body, cold and still.
With a final breath, I whisper out
“I love you, and always will”.
