Dying Friend

Updated on June 17, 2017

What do you do when

Your best friend is dying

And the pain you feel

Keeps you from crying

You know a part of you

Will no longer be there

The reality of which

You can hardly bear

What can you do

What can you say

As you watch your friend

Just fading away

How do you go on

After something like this

When there’s something inside

You know you’re gonna miss

How do you accept

Having to say goodbye

Knowing there’s nothing else

The doctors can try

All you can do

Is give tribute to your friend

And be there for them

Until the final end.

      Part of your soul will journey with them wherever they are going, and theirs will remain with you, Tears will come in time , their own time, and you will forever remember the things you share with them.....peace.

      That was really sad but beautiful at the same time.

      It is definitely hard, but all you can do is let them know that you care and share your time with them. And just try to make them as comfortable as possible and maybe take them out and do little things together even going for a drive.
