The Last ' I Love You' - Poem by Elisabeth Anne Wingle

As I sat with Bruce
On the hospital floor
You took one breath
Then breathed no more
We looked in amazement
And then we wept
You looked so calm
As if you slept
Now you've gone
And I watched you go
But first there was something
I wanted you to know
I Love You Mom
I really do
You looked up and said
I love you too!

Poet's Notes about The Poem

This is exactly what happened on the day my mother passed away.
She was in and out of conscieness all day. She fought very hard and was able to pull through the morphine fog and speak to a few of us.

    This is very nice. I also have a tribute to my mom in a poem 'Memories of Mother'.
    Thanks for sharing.
