Burden

May 19, 2013 | kirin

 

 

 

 

That it were sudden or prolonged.

Whichever the case, we all feel wronged.

I miss the person you were.

Full of light, laughter and love.

 

 

To be the victim,

Or the survivor

To be the patient,

or the carer -

Neither is worse neither is better.

 

 

It’s difficult to bear the illness that found you

The illness you did nothing to deserve.

You lived your life as best you could -

Worked your hardest, gave it your all.

 

 

It’s difficult to be left behind

Not get a chance to say goodbye.

 

 

It’s difficult to sit and watch

The person you love

Fade day by day into a shadow of what once was.

Forget what they sounded like when they laughed.

 

 

Sharp words when they can be spoken

I want to fix what is broken.

 

 

A burden you are to me

As i was to you.

The roles reversed

One thing stays true.

 

 

I. love. you.
