What you don't see:
Your face is etched in my brain.
Your heartbreak and sorrow are never forgotten.
I will be strong and supportive
when you need to cry on my shoulder.
I may shed a tear with you
but will sob for you later.
Carrying your cold lifeless body
I remember watching you playing
while your sister danced.
Sitting at the nurses station with you
listening to you belt out show tunes
is one of my favorite memories of you.
You were so gracious
as you asked the nurse to get you something
and you passed away alone.
