A Poem by miahstr

We have been here before

Waving from an open door

This is the last time i’ll say goodbye

Just grow up and let me die

It was 3 months of chemo

3 weeks of drugs

A lifetime in the hospital

And now I’ve done all I could have done

Just say goodbye to me

Forget about me now

I don’t have much time

And that seems to create distance somehow

It’s OK to be mad at me

I know this was sudden

Just take the kids and leave

They can’t see me this low

They say I have a few months

Before I have to go

This is the last visit

This is the last call

I am already dead

If you believe what the doctors said

Just remember the good days

The ones not long ago

Don’t think of me now

And the way I explode

Life is painful

And I am a mess

What's the use in adding to your stress

Just one last wave from my door

That is all I have left

Keep away from me

Let me die in bed
