I have to say this poem has really touched me.
The idea that we could lose someone so close is just devastating.
Such heartbreak, emotion.
There's a purity in this poem... I don't know why but the innocence in this reminds me that of a child.
As he lays beside me sleeping
I can't help but feel so helpless
positive healing fills our days
but as he sleeps, I retreat to writing
And cry, a lot....
You always try to put a positive thought to a bad situation but sometimes it can be difficult.
The idea that you don't want them to see you hurting so you wait till they sleep to ensure that
They can't tell that what they are going through, you are going through as well. You don't want them to see you as being weak. To me it's like they would wonder what would happen if they left? How would you be if you were like this when they are still here. Very touching and heartbreaking.
His battle with cancer is a daily reminder for me
to love him more than I did the day before
kiss him longer than I did thirty minutes ago
and to never take for granted
the gift of his sweet love
This stanza is so beautiful. To me it's like making the most of the time we have left with them. Taking in as much of their love as possible before they slip away
Oh this is a beautiful poem indeed that has completely affected me.
This is one of those touching writes, that allow you to see things out of your perspective and even feel part of the pain you go through every day. This poem definately shows how much love you have for him and that it isn't always easy, but more than worth it.

I have my bad days, I have my good days. But with you by my side, fighting in my corner, everyday is still a good day. This is a battle that cannot be won, we both know this. But we push forward, with each day brought, and just hold each other. Thank you for being in my life, and loving me the way you do. The Goddess's truly blessed me with you. I love you eternally.

Andrea... I think we were just talking about that... and you know, you twisted my heart now.. I felt so susceptible to your words, with a naked ear.. I really shivered because.. because you stole my senses and made me eyes teary. but with all of that, I know that you have a pure heart and you just made me smile at the end because you choose to fight it. that is what matters. stay strong..

This poem instantly brought a tear to my eye, and chills all over my arms. It was beautiful, emotionally raw, and so vulnerable. You've said so much in so little here, and the amount of raw emotion packed it just hits me in the gut.
"to love him more than I did the day before"
I love this line the most, it's the one that really hit home for me. Life is so short, you could lose yourself or someone you love today, tomorrow, or in fifty years from now, and you never know. The last thing I want to do if I lost someone is regret that I didn't express my love. Oh, this is so heartfelt.
Trails we leave behind these shadows of Time, I feel, is hope enough to smile through the errors we disappoint down to gravity. It's our Hero's way to move on..perhaps, but His blue skies I can assure, are never asleep to carry him close..breathing calm. It is well..
Aww... this poem is so heartfelt, so sweet yet so sad... and it really touched my heart and moved me. It is so sad to know a loved one has cancer and is dying, so if you really are going through this I am so sorry and hope he recovers and gets better. You have been strong throughout this, and I can tell from this poem.
I like how when he sleeps that is when you show your sadness and cry, because a lot of us are strong throughout the day, especially if someone else is going through something, but once we're alone at night it gets harder.
The second stanza was so sweet and really made me feel this is true love. When hard things happen, it is easier to appreciate people and to love them more, and make every second count. I like your descriptions in this stanza.
And the ending was sweet... It really affected me.
Well done with this poem :)
Prayers for your loved one and hope things get better <3
This poem stings my heart :( What a gut wrenching experience that many go through!
This poem, yes the subject was sad, was so beautifully written and a sweet tribute to a struggling person. Bless your heart for being there rather than breaking down infront of the person to make it a little worse.
This is just beautiful!! Reminder for all to make each day count
Love is not always about passionate feelings.Loving somebody at their best comes easy.True Love is loving them at their worst.Difficult times come to test the essence of true love.
Truely blessed heart.
what a build up, and I am still floating in tears, the tissue is to wet.

I don't know what to say,
I have read this poem many times and I have attempt to leave a comment but I can't seem to find the right words. I just feel like crying everytime I read it but somehow I feel hope written all over this piece.
It's sad yet tender and it fascinates to know that this type of love exist. I wish I could explain with words how I feel but I can't.
Heart wrenching, truly touches ones heart, wakes you up, makes you realize to live each day to the fullest cause you just never know, love with all that you have and all that you are, thank the powers that be that you are blessed to have each other... its hard to always be strong, you've gotta let it out... as always, you've touched me with your words...
