Heartfelt. It brought back memories of the time I saw my father dead in his armchair watching TV, with a trickling tear on his cheek.

Since the day I saw you,
since the day we met,
I knew this I wouldn't forget.
I have loved you more than life itself,
now it seems were falling apart.
This thing that just won't go away,
was more then you could take.
But I'll hold on tight past the very end...
No matter how much it hurt,
I sat and watched you get worse.
I held your hand all through the night,
never to let go.
I wake up, and you were no longer here,
I'm haunted by these memories of you and me,
as a tear falls down my face I remember...
You will be here holding my hand all through the night like I did yours,
but most of all...
you will always be in my heart.

Hey I know how it feels. My grandma passed away from leukemia, breast cancer, and a brain tumor. I loved my grandma with every inch of my heart because when I was abandoned as a little girl she took me in and raised me as her own. My grandma's name was Lorena. She took chemo to help get rid of it but one day she woke up and her body was no longer reacting to it. I watched everyday while my grandma's condition got worse and worse. It hurt a lot ! I did spend many nights in the hospital beside her bed just holding her hand as I watched her get closer and closer to death everyday. And then one day when I came back from school and I went to the hospital they had told me that my grandma had passed away around noon on that very day! They showed me my grandmas body and I laid by her for the 3 hours or so just balling because the most important person in my life had just left me and I was not there to say goodbye! So I do know how you feel! I could never forget my grandma and you shouldn't either.
