ALS Robbed My Daddy

Wed, 07/17/2013 - 01:04 -- blyon1

The body slowly became useless 

Slowly but surely he lost all function

Couldn't tell me he loved me

Wasn't able to ask how my day was

He wanted to hug me but his arms wouldn't let him

His hands wanted to play ball with me 

I watched it eat his body alive

Yet his mind was left stay

So he knew exactly what was happening

What would you do if you looked into those eyes?

Knowing they were your eyes too

ALS robbed my daddy
