Callie Marie Stanley
A year ago today you left my arms for good.
You would have stayed much longer.
If you only could.
My best friend for all those years
I hope you always knew
My life was good my life was full
All because of you.
The Dr was so thoughtful
so kind and gentle too.
She let me hold you on my lap
so I could comfort you.
I held you tight and tried to fight
the urge to scream out no.
I wanted to run
and take you home
so we could be alone
but the pain in your eyes
told me it was not wise
Your time on earth was done.
You were so brave that awful day
as your eyes looked into mine.
I knew right then
my faithful friend
that your suffering was to end.
It was so hard to let you go
but I knew it was for the best.
Your little body was so tired
it needed peace and rest.
So I watched you pass without a gasp, a whimper or a moan
You went to sleep, your soul to keep
with God in your new home.
I missed you then, I miss you now.
Some days my tears do start.
Without you here its always clear
Your forever in my heart.
A year ago today...that awful, awful day.
