it comes, it takes, like a thief in the night 

no worry, mercy... it has no heart

you cannot see this entity  with sight

this thing that comes has perfected it's art 


youre loved ones are close.. yet so far away

the hospital room feels as cold as ice

that hug, the tears, I could not keep at bay 

i was selfish, but this would now be twice 


you will shortly leave me here on this earth 

you look at me with such strength in your eyes 

I leave you knowing I've loved you with since birth 

your eyes fade, the crisp morning sun at rise



although apart, we will always be bestfriends 

my heart is at ease knowing your soul ascends.
