Random Poem:

Letting Go

I hold your hand
As you slowly slip away
I try my hardest not to let go
But there is no more I can do
I gently begin to release your hand
And I see your face get angry
But please forgive, and please understand
I've tried my hardest,
But my hardest just wasn't enough
There is no more advice left to give
And the only thing left to be done
Is say I love you, and I'll never forget you
I wish I could've done more
And I wish I could've helped better
But helping is no long an option
For I've given all the help I can
You now need a power stronger than me
And hopefully you will find it in the near future
Because at this moment in time,
I can no longer be here
