I Will Remember Us This Way

It was the day of 25th Jan around evening. I was going on my way back to flat after finishing my exams. I received a text from my mother that, "Your Aunt is hospitalized again and Doctor told us she only have approximately 45 hours left to live.

Sitting beside her bed, holding her hand, I was starring at ground while my thoughts running wild. I got stuck at one thought only, echoing in my ears begging please hold on to me.

"A Sigh"


I see

Hurricane has surrounded you

But please hold onto me.


I see

Thunder storm is ragging above your head

But please hold onto me.



I see

Lightening has burnt your fragility

But please hold onto me.


I see

Earthquake has engulfed half of you

But please hold onto me.


I see you

You want to let go of me

But please hold onto me.



I see you

Do you see me whining

Will you please hold onto me?

*sobbing*


HOLD ONTO ME

HOLD ONTO ME

WILL YOU PLEASE *sigh*

HOLD ONTO ME.

I Will Live This Moment Forever

It is so very difficult to let the ones we love pass on when our hearts want them to stay.

May God comfort you in this difficult time.

I can relate Hamza. My mother was on a ventilator and we were told they would need to turn obit off eventually, and when they did she would only have a few hours to live. It is a very sad and difficult time. Thank you for sharing this poem.
