How we have grown so familiar
That I consider you a friend
How I have grown so used to you
Snatched life from middle to end.
I have gently erased your presence
I saw your work before my eyes
I told loved ones you were looming
Nurse Amy was there when they pass life.
Yet many times it’s been personal
You stung me in my heart
Snatched those I love away
But I’m learning you’re just doing your part.
The loss you cause has become so familiar
What is it- thirty times plus we’ve met?
Yet I’m guilty of some relief you bring
Life still sparkles after you, Death.
I noticed how the sunshines
The next morning from the night before
Oh how I’ve spent hours cursing and loathing you
But I’m sure we will meet again once more.
All life is borrowed
When given, the end must must be
To kiss goodbye, but meet again
The ones we love never truly leave.
