Letting Go

A broken smile
a lifeless face,
her distant eyes
aren't out of place.
Her arms are thin
her breath is weak
she doesn't move,
she doesnt speak.
She looks so small
just waiting by,
I grip her hand
but no reply.
I feel her breath
fading away,
she doesn't blink...
she doesn't stay.
A single tear
drips out my eye
I want to stop,
it hurts to cry.
My thumping heart
beats in my chest,
I close her eyes...
And let her rest.
