It's not easy...
Listening to your wife ask to go home every day
Hearing you ask me the same questions over and over again
Watching you walk around searching for your daughter or mother
Seeing you lay in bed all day with no visitors for weeks
Watching, seeing or hearing about you take your last breath...
When you become my family
When I become your family too
Hearing about you passing on
Its's the hardest of all
Watching you take your last breaths...
