The Last Great Gasp
The time was growing near,
No longer was time on my side,
I looked for a way to tell you dear,
But had to swallow my foolish pride.
You never saw it coming this time,
It seemed though that it was something you wanted,
I tried to let all the bad things slide,
Still, my sleep was full of haunting.
I still love you and you know its true,
Though our life together has been tough.
I tried to hold it together without being blue,
Now, emotionally it’s just too rough.
I have to tell you I am finally leaving,
The scars run deep and long.
I couldn’t do this for fear of grieving,
Before now it just felt wrong.
The nurse walks in I open my eyes,
The room is cold and empty.
I stare out the window to the open sky,
I’m glad I don’t see my kid’s sympathy.
I dream of things for one last time,
Things I never said out loud,
Like how much I love my kid and wife,
And how I much I loved being around.
Breathing shallow and pain is gone,
I’m sorry for leaving this way,
It one last great gasp and a angels song,
Remember me, not this day.
For my brother
