This is it

she is tired of fighting

and even though

i feel like crying

she needs this time of joy.


this is it

she is going to leave us soon

The smile on her face

still fills the room

all I want to do is swoon

in this little time left.


This is it

no more chemo for her

She is so very tired

i have done all i can to help her

now she will go on alone


what do I do

without my mother

without her cherished love


I feel so damn selfish

knowing she will soon

be watching us from above


But this is it

This i must accept

It won’t be long

till I am with her yet


it won’t be long

until I sing to her

our song

and kiss her goodbye.

and tell her

I love you mom

goodbye. goodbye.
