My husband had died
I didn't understand why my daughter wanted to.
I was angry and I was hurt

She lay sleeping with hidden sorrow.
I lay at rest, one eye opened .
My mine races for answer, not yet asked.

The hurt is so deep,  hers or mine?
Life seems so sad, for the young or old?

Would she end all so soon?
This love is not deep.
Selfish, coward, loser.
So young to leave and rest.
Leave me with one eye opened.

Life is not fair to some so young.
To take a rest at ones own hand,
 is to leave a soul uneasy.
And sleeps with one eye opened.

Rest now beside the one who's love was not deep,
Easy escape. No tears, no sorrow, no pain.

Suns up now, and yet another morn is in the dawn.
As I Arise, time stands still,
 to wipe a tear from the eye of sleep.
For I now sleep, with one eye opened.
