when miracles vanish, I start to smile


the latest response to Mr. Shvets’  ponderings:

I have lost count of the time
I have sat next to you
Watching as the days go by
Stuck together like glue
Sunsets and sunrises
Dinner dates and surprises
Cherished memories to last a lifetime

But now I lose count of the hours
I have spent next to your bed
Watching you, touching your head
As you slowly fade away
Breathing shallow and laboured
And each hour of every day
I pray for a lifeline

But answer there comes none.

So, on this day
As you leave us and we stay
Miracles there will be none
Except one
For you will be free of pain
And finally gain
Your freedom.

And I will smile
Through the tears
As I look out for you
In the heavens and the stars.
