Refusing to Let Go 

I can’t imagine what you felt

In that place, on your last day

Oh, how I wish to know

 .

For I knew you were in pain

Although you’d never say

But you’d let your discomforts show

 .

Though she was there to witness death-

Not I, cut from your very cloth

You’re still with me as I grow

.

Tears will fall as I take my breath

As I die slowly, in remembrance of you,

Refusing to let go
