The day I lost you, was the day that i knew,

my heart had been plunged out my body,

when they told me it was lukemia

 

they said theres nothing they can do,

all I have to do is be patient,

as the nights drew in, the more sick you came

the more i couldnt stand the sight of you

 

I sat beside you, whilst you laid on the bed,

slowly watching you die,

day by day, night by night.

 

I watched you die, as i held your hand,

i cried for hours, and hours on end,

begging i could just hug you

I see you in my dreams but you disappear

as soon as i call your name

 

i'm no longer the same, as i stare endlessly at your photo,

my heart began to melt every day that goes by and yet I miss you more

my love for you was unbearable, i wish i never lost you,

 

I just went home, for 15 minutes and when i came back,

you were nearly gone. 

Dad just gave me a look,

at that point i knew, my life was officially over.

 

It doesn't feel the same, walking into your house,

Knowing you are no longer there and no longer will be, 

I always look at your chair and the memories come flooding back,

we all feel it and we all see it

 

I wish you were here with me, as you held my hand in mercy,

I only want one more day just to say i'm sorry.

I miss you more each day and i never told you i loved you.

 

Granda, i love you! x
