Forever

I can remember the time that we spent together, the love that we shared, and the plans we made. We promised each other forever. Why did it all have to disappear? Why did you have to leave me here alone? I know that you battled against the disease that slowly crushed the life out of your delicate sickly body. You did not succumb to the cancer. You fought with every ounce of life in you, but it was not enough. I did not let you see me tears or my pain. I will miss you forever, for you are lost, but not forgotten.

I held your hand as you passed from this life. I reminded you of those golden days. I whispered into your precious ear as your eyes flutter closed for the final time, "Forever."
