One Day Closer….

March 31, 2012

Sitting here silently
watching you sleep
Listening to the sound of the clock
ticking off the minutes as time passes by
Knowing each new dawn
brings me one day closer
to the one we’ll say goodbye
Looking so tired and frail
I still see you as you were
Strong, proud and loving
you will always be to me
A lifetime of memories
etched forever in my mind
A love like no other
Held forever in my heart
