It's Hard


It's not easy...

It's hard

Listening to your wife ask to go home every day

It's hard

Hearing you ask me the same questions over and over again

It's hard

Watching you walk around searching for your daughter or mother

It's hard

Seeing you lay in bed all day with no visitors for weeks

It's hardest

Watching, seeing or hearing about you take your last breath...

It's harder

When you become my family

It's harder

When I become your family too

It's hardest

Hearing about you passing on

Its's the hardest of all

Watching you take your last breaths...

Usually alone.
