Never had I imagined, that I would see someone who was once so strong
Become so weak.
Seeing him in such pain, makes my heart sink.
I remember the days, when he used to lift us up off the ground, and chase us through the house.
Tickle fights , and games of tag.
He taught us how to tie a fishing hook, and how to drive a boat.
He used to throw us overboard and join us for a swim.
He taught us everything, that is anything important in life.
Taught us how to smile, and enjoy every mile that life had to offer.
Whenever we would cry, or scrape a knee.
He'd hold us and dry our tears.
His hugs were the warmest, and his voice the softest.
I've never seen mother smile, like she does for him.
Love like theirs, I have always admired.
He needs us all now more than ever.
It's sometimes hard to smile, when all we want to do is cry.
But we do whatever we can, to be by his side for the rest of his life til the very end.
To hold his hand like we promised, to always say we love him.
