Last Moments


It’s good to be there, is what they told

Hold her hand and let her go

Through your voice and through your touch

Be with her now, she needs you much

She will know, she will hear

And comfort take that you are near


And so I was, with breaking heart

Our end of time as we now part

All those days and love filled years

Drowning deep in desperate tears

Though body fought and might she try

No word she said nor open eye

With her last breath our time was done

Though holding hands she was now gone


And now they say I should solace take

In love and child that we did make

Remember well and do not grieve

The love remains it will not leave

But those thoughts they pain me more

For cruel fate she must endure

To no more see or touch their skin

My sadness deep for her and kin


So did you know and did you hear

And comfort take that I was near

My last to you was but a cry

A broken soul our last goodbye

And thus it is in all I do

My heart will ever sorrow you

It’s good to be there, is what they told

Hold her hand and let her go
