I can't imagine what you're going through,
this truly must feel like hell.
How does a person decide,
"is this the man I loved or merely his shell.
I know this is rough,
and I don't want to sound unkind.
But what actually makes a person,
is not the body but the mind.
Some may praise your compassion,
yet I feel this is just insane.
How could you spend your life,
with someone who lacks a brain.
Your love is so tenacious,
but it's time to loosen your hold.
Life deals us many cards.
With this hand I advise you fold.
You have a lot of love to give,
and you may not think this is fair.
But it's time to move on,
and find someone who can return your care.
Keep him forever with you,
deep back in your minds archive.
Please hear me when I tell you this,
your boyfriend is no longer alive.
This is a big decision,
and I say this with remorse.
but it's time to let go,
and let nature take its course.
