Still HereMy eyes are shut but I hear you speak.More Like This
I try to move but my body's too weak.
There's not long left, the fight's at an end;
I've been through enough, no longer able to mend.
You've been there for me, through the highs and lows,
Been my rock, my saviour, as it continued to grow.
We knew this day would come when told the news,
Hearing, listening but feeling bemused.
I fought like a warrior, wanting to stay
But my body deceived me, I'm slipping away.
I feel you beside me, your warm hand on mine,
As I take a deep breath for one last time.
I smile at you and look into your eyes,
I'll always be with you, the new star in the sky.
The room turns cold, the machines no longer beep,
No longer here, resting in an eternal sleep.
