I wish I could save you.

I sit beside you.
Quietly..
I grab your hand,
You squeeze my fingers tight.
This doesn't feel right.
Holding back tears with all my might.
I give you a smile,
So you know it's alright.
Sometimes I wish I could save you,
But I'm no superhero.
I know no cure.
You're so strong
But I know you're scared.
Your eyes speak it all
And I wish I could take the pain away.
I wish you didn't have to hurt.
You told me you have a feeling,
That tonight's the night.
The night you die.
My lip starts to shake,
I can't handle it.
The fact that you're going,
That you'll never come back.
But...
I will stay up with you all night.
I'll be here until the finally moment.
The last time you shut your eyes,
I'll be here.
I promise,
You won't be alone.
Your hand becomes weak.
It's time...
