"Never Said Goodbye"
She lay in the bed.
My Aunt's eyes were red.
The only sounds to be heard is the machines and your breathing.
The faithful sentinel is there watching.
He doesn't leave your side.
All of his tears have dried.
By your bed he sits with you.
The switch begins.
Briefly your heart stops.
The doctors stomach flip flops.
Soon you're back but worse than before.
You had started a blanket.
To keep your hands busy.
Your hands used to move so fast it made me dizzy.
The pink blanket was never finished.
I tried not to show it.
My tears....My hurt....My guilt....
I felt so hopeless.
When it counted i couldn't cry.
Everyone around me cried, but I couldn't.
I didn't see you much in the end.
I couldn't see you....
A strong woman who'd taught me so much....
Just fade away.
I was afraid....
I was weak....
I ran away from the inevitable.
He'd turn another year older that day.
The day you decided to slip away.
December fifth, a time of celebration....
Became a time of lamentation.
