As you lay there in the bed
I held your hand in mine
I begged you to open your eyes again
For you to see me one last time
I asked you to try and squeeze my hand
I just wanted you to let me know
That you knew I was by your side
Promising I?d never let you go
I lay my head upon your chest
So I could hear the beating of your heart
I just wanted you to put your arms around me
And I know you tried really hard.
But no matter how hard you tried
It just wasn?t meant to be
I knew that you were slowly dying
Drifting further away from me.
When the doctor came to tell us
That there was nothing more they could do
Except to give you another 24 hours
Time to say our goodbyes to you.
But there isn?t enough time in the world
To say what I wanted to say
Not enough seconds in each minute
When knowing with you I only had one more
day.
One more day sitting at your bedside
One more day sitting holding your hand
One more day sitting watching you take each
breath
My last day sitting with my dad.
When they came to turn the machines off
And all close family and friends were there
Just watching them turn off the life support
Gave me pain, too much pain to bear
Then we all stood hoping and praying
That a miracle would happen today
But our hopes and prayers went unanswered
As we watched you slowly slip away.
Your breathing got slower and shorter
And your beating heart began to fail
Your skin turned very cold to touch
And you began to look so pale
Then you took your very last breath
And as you did your eyes opened wide
But there was no look of life in your eyes
Just a blankness as you died.
I still didn?t want to leave you
The thought of you being alone I just
couldn?t bare
So I stayed sitting at your bedside
My heart full of despair
The tears are still falling down my face
As I remember the times we had
And I will never forget a single moment
That I spent with my dad
