Tuti Bena

Somewhere between hope and hopeless
Your battle battered me up.
The cancer ate me away.

Last night I put my focus on you
I wanted to see you in my dreams
You took me to the places you have seen
then you showed me your final days.

Your skinny knees......

With the help of your hand
Lifting underneath the knee
To move your legs one by one

I believe I saw your
last meal in public

your last signed

The fragile

The shaken pen syndrome

You were withering and weak
A sack of bones depleted, void
Of your immense energy.

Waiting for something
Waiting for relief

Good grief?

I grieve.

Not the dream
I'd foreseen
Tearing me away
From the sheets

Waking up crying

In a crowd of
A hundred thousand
I would find you
In a galaxy of billions
You find me in one night

The tears keep streaming

  This is heartbreaking and lovely, Chelbel.

It is horrific to watch cancer take one we love, to watch them become a shell of their former selves. It eats at us too, in its own way, but to know your loved one knows you will always see them as the energetic and vital being regardless.

I enjoyed your play on words, and it was fitting here; battle / battered, good grief / I grieve; a punch in the gut.
