The Day We Met

The deafening tears in the hallway  
As whispers echo in the distance
Screams approaching the doorway
I'm fading out of existence
I hear the sound of a screeching door
As the nurse let my family in
The shuffling of shoes on the floor
As drool runs slowly down my chin  
I feel the moisture from his tears
From a face I can't remember  
I love you dad is all I hear
Sounds of his voice so familiar  
Can't place where I know him from
My eyes still unable to open
But my heart is soothed with comfort
Memories coming back soon I'm hoping  
Dark and gray consume my vision
As I try to form some words to say
Approaching me now my wife's mission  
Nothing could ever stand in her way
I can hear her whisper in my ear
As she places her hand on my chest
Don't leave me now I love you dear
As I force out words with my final breath
I love you too sweetie
You've always been my angel
Please move forward without me
I know this must be painful
All the things I wish I could say
As my body this darkness now consumes
And at that moment I floated away
And from above I saw the whole room
All this love I felt that filled my life
My body laying on my deathbed
My son standing next to my kneeling wife
As beautiful and precious as the day we met
