Holding onto your skinny hand,
while letting our hopes stand.
We stayed by your side,
yet our words are tied.
Praying for you each day,
wishing you could stay.
As tears trickled down your cheek,
I wondered what was it you wanted to speak.
When we watched your breath slowed down,
we frowned as our hearts pound.
Waiting for the next breath that never comes,
our hopes shattered into crumbs.
We held on to the last tinge of hope,
to have it all gone down slope.
As we find for the last sign of heartbeat desperately,
only to realise we have lost totally.
To watch your leaving,
I had indescribable feeling.
Yet knowing that you no longer need to fight,
soothed our broken hearts tonight.
Having you in our lives was a gift,
and be sure you will be missed.
This poem above is dedicated to my aunt who had passed away on 30th August 2014.
She was a fighter for cancer and a really wonderful aunt.
Respect to her for her optimistic attitude throughout her whole life.
Thank you for everything.
Rest In Peace, Aunt.
