Closing my eyes
Closing my eyes is not an option. If I do, I might miss it.
That final moment. That final breath of goodbye.
My body is aching. My head is spinning.
I am overwhelmed with hunger and thirst.
Leaving is not an option. If I leave you might let go.
I will not leave your side. I will hold your hand until the end.
I can feel your heartbeat when I lay my head on your chest.
I can feel your love.
I’m going to sit for a moment. A minute of sweet rest.
Closing my eyes is not an option…..
