He Was Left Behind

He’s in the nursing home
5 years now
His son never visit him
He missed him so much

He cried each night
Just thinking about the past
And why is it?
His life being trapped in a Nursing home

He don’t have anyone
To ever talk to
So he spoke with the nurse
Who think he’s mentally ill

But it wasn’t quite true
That old people in nursing home
Are all stupid

They know what they’re talking about
Its quite sometime true

My intern was in the nursing home
Yes I knew him
I sat there beside him talking
And reach out for him

I asked my teacher to call his son
To visit him before time he go
They soon call his son
His son change number
They did whatever to reach his destination

Many years has passed
The old man past
In the nursing home leaving $100,000
For his son

When soon he found out
His father died
He came to see him
Too late…
He never had a chance to say goodbye

Please all I asked from anyone
To never leave your parent behind
In the nursing home or not
They all love you no matter what
Make sure you visit them
Let them know your by their side
Before it is their dieing time

Because their in the nursing home
Have some sort of medical problem
But their spiritual mind
Is not a problem
Please don’t leave them behind
