You are trapped as if in amber


Almost ten years now since that day


While we swallowed the lumps in our throats


And had to look away


I know you never wanted to live like this


That it is brutally unfair to you


That decision was never really in our hands


It was never our right to decide what to do


And they say you are fading


They say sickness will be a blessing that you knew


Soon, as days shorten, the winter will take you


Each time I look into those eyes


Piercing blue, looking right into my soul


I know they did the wrong thing


You will never again be whole


But it was never in our hands


Never the childrens’ decision to make


Instead that of a tired, shattered wife


Holding on so she would not break


In some strange way time has stood still


You are trapped in eternity


And I feel that lump rise in my throat yet again


To know that love now feels like the enemy


Keeping you alive so we don’t have to lose you


Has ever a more selfish thing been done


I know those dark, gray skies are lurking


Behind a cold, heartless sun


The doctors say you are fading


They say sickness will be a blessing you knew


They tell us as the days grow short


One day winter will take you

Very deep statements:

"You are trapped in eternity

And I feel that lump rise in my throat yet again

To know that love now feels like the enemy"

Flip side: Eternity is a trap only for those who are left behind.
Winter always brings another spring.

blessin's on a very deep poem Cade,
