As Your Breathing Slowed by Raymond A. Foss

I remember those last few moments
as your breathing slowed, no longer labored
she on the side of your bed, stroking your hair
her gentle caresses of your now calm brow
drifting to eternity, your girl beside you
letting you know it was okay to go
I remember your last breath, her gasp
as you became still, at peace, in your rest
Did you watch over us, as we sat there
she still beside you, quieter now,
silent rising and falling now of her chest
as she cried for herself now, without you
who she relied on so much
But she was beside you, feeling you near her
a comfort in being with you still
in those final moments with you
