Last Breath

She clawed her way upon his chest

The pain that wracked her body stole her rest

Medication dulled the pain, but never completely took it away

In and out of consciousness, delirious to her surroundings

In her weakness she pulled on his strength

Because she had none of her own

Tears streaming down his cheeks, through his beard, onto her hair

Thoughts of losing the love of his life was more than he could bear

I have to be strong for her no matter what the outcome is

Lord give her a miracle and let this nightmare end

Her breathing was so shallow he checked to see

If she was still with him or moved on to eternity

Pulled her closer to him to breathe for her once more

A flashback of the years gone by

When everything was going great

The memories will be tucked away

In hisĀ heart that beats for her

My heart will always beat for you

With every breath I take

Your smile, the twinkle in your eyes

Our wonderful life together

Can never be replaced

As she drew her last breath

Peace became her covering

He whispered in her ear

My dear, I’ll always love you

Forever
