Until the end

Now I know
Now it is real to me
The intellectual and far away
Has become a cloud
Now I know
Of a storm on the horizon

The storm will gather
Maybe over years
Maybe over just months
Your death in the future
Weeks, months, years, lost is lost, isn't it
So what does it matter?

It matters because I will make it matter
Every moment I am with you
Always was, but more so now is
A gift, given to us
Every memory means future tears
But every memory also means bliss

I will live
With gratitude
For having been a part of your life
I will do my best
To honor
What you are and what you gave me

I will be on my own then, when the time comes
Not alone, but feeling lonely once again
But this time I will let the tears flow when they want to flow
And let myself remember all
It hurts, but pain just is no reason

To let you die inside my heart

I did it wrong, once upon a time
This time I'll do it right
To love means to be able to let go
And grieve
And wade through sorrow
I'll be alright
This much I know, if nothing else, don't worry

I understand

That to survive a loss
You must face the pain
And walk the road together
Til it parts forever

Until the end
