I looked for you Today

I looked for you today
you went away

Not far from thought,
nor from the heart
but gone from sight

I still recall
your final night
I said goodbye

Then sat and cried

Remembering now

You have died

Beside your Bedside

Beside your Bedside

I sat beside your bedside
wondering what to do
watching, waiting, hoping
for bittersweet peace

Beside your bedside
Final moments,
wrapped in sad despair
wanting an end for your
pain, not you

Beside your bedside
one final time, wanting to see you,
one last time
but you've gone

Beside your bedside
I sit, listening
to ear piercing
silence, once filled with your
gentle snore.

Beside your bedside
I hold your hand
wish you a safe journey
and raise a glass of beer
