Wanting to Hold You

I wanted so badly
To hold you tight
Not knowing when
You would see the light
But your body has become
Oh so frail
Your bones are weak
And the muscles, they fail
So thin and fragile, is your skin
I wish I could make you
Healthy again
I see the frustration
In your eyes
It breaks my heart
Every time you cry
I’m dreading the day
I get the call
That says you are now
Watching over us all
So badly I wanted
To hold you tight
Not knowing when
You would see the light
Not wanting to hurt
Your delicate frame
I kissed your forehead
And drove away
Your scent lingered
As I began to pray
God, when it’s time
For you to take her home
Let her be not afraid
Without pain and not alone

Thank you for reading.

With love,

    1. Thank you. I’m sorry for your family’s loss and hope that this did not stir up too much sadness in your heart. It’s never easy, but I know that hanging on to the beautiful moments makes it a little less painful. ❤

    1. It seems the older I get, the more aware of this fact I become. For this particular person, her time is coming far too soon in life. It doesn’t seem fair, but I guess that the man in charge has other plans. 💕 Thank you for your kindness. Xo

  1. Beautifully written. It was just 5 months ago that we went through a similar experience with my mum. You have captured the emotion perfectly. My prayers to you and the lady that is going through this right now. ❤️


    1. I’m so sorry if it caused you extra heartache and pain that is still so fresh for you and your son. Thank you. ♡ Some days the reality of it hits hard. This is my aunt who has been like another mom over the years. It’s so hard to watch her decline. The other person my heart hurts for is my mom, as she has to watch her younger sister slip away after already losing so much family.
