It was a feeling you would have died for

And all anyone could do was watch the tragedy unfold

Watching the time on your hands tick by

Until you had run out

Before you experienced your wedding day,

The feeling of a child calling you “dad”

All we did was stood by

Our help wasn’t wanted 

Our open arms felt cold to you

They weren’t strong enough to keep you in place

Words weren’t much for you

Our sad eyes made you avert yours

You fought hard

You fought until the end

But your body had never been strong enough to overcome such battles

We remember you quietly

As not to dwell on your departure 

But instead celebrate the good that embodied every part of your being.
