Age Group: Adult
Your life gone so quickly
the sheen in your eye
replaced by the dullness of death
replaced by the dullness of illness
You were once a strong powerful guy
Now the illness
is making you fade away.
Making you seem so weak
Strong hands that used to bring alive
the most beautiful places on canvas
Can only yearn for something they once knew
Arms that used to hold me in big bear hugs
can no longer hold a glass of water
Legs that used to play tag
for hours and hours
Can now no longer even carry you to walk
Your eyes that used to show
such passion for life
are now dull with illness
dull with sadness
and dull with the hope of death
Author's Notes: I wrote this some time ago when I found out my Uncle Richard tested positive for AIDS and HIV. I love him so much and yet so afraid to loose him.
