Touched By Love

Updated on January 4, 2012

You Did It To Me All The Time

The years vanished as if they were made of dust and someone came along with a vacume

I remember when you were small what a treasure

So cute and I loved how your eyes could see right through me finding all my love

I gave in at any time you wanted to play or if you needed some special attention

I enjoyed every minute and you made every day fun

Sixteen years later and age has changed us

We feel like we are the same but we have changed so much

You now are unable to do the things you want and walk with great trouble

I assist you when I can but you are so independent you want to do everything yourself

I watch you struggle and I know there is nothing I can do

It is too late for help and now you sleep more than ever before

I want you home with me if something happens

I leave for work and later when I come home and you are asleep

Our interests have never been the same and we have never looked eye to eye

Some how we managed to look past our many differences and our love brought us together

They say opposites attract

We never liked the same food

You were always the lazy one

I did all the talking and all you ever did is listen

I was not always right and you proved me wrong time and time again

Sometimes I didn't know if I was coming or going

But it didn't matter to you

You were just glad to see me

You have an adopted sister that you met for the first time about a year and a half ago

When you were younger you were a little hellion

Boy I wish those days would come back

You use to run and you were pretty fast because I could never keep up

With a tear in my eye I say goodbye

The time is near but you still haven't given up the will to fight

You have lost so much weight and I can feel the bones where the meat once was

I have one favorite picture I took and I show everyone

There are many more pictures but they are left for another time to cherish

You have no enemies that I can think of and that is a wonderful way to live

You have helped so many with just your loving nature

May you finally find peace where no earthly troubles can ever reach

I must let you go even though I fight to save your every breath

You know better than me what has to be

As I rubbed your head and told you what you mean to me and how I will always remember you

Life goes on and a beautiful new day awaits

I now get changed and get ready to eat and off to work to make things better

I leave you but you are never left alone

Because my thoughts can travel any distance

Once again I have learned a new way to love and share my life
