Hospice

Does she see your unhappiness?
If you put on a happy face,
She will feel better.

But If she sees–you’re upset,
She’ll only be sad,
Because she can’t help it,
That she’s weak.

Don’t let her hear your crying,
Because she will stop trying,
To keep her strength,
From slipping away.

So please–be strong for her,
Sing songs, read poems,
Even tell her silly stuff,
Like you used to–yesterday.

And you’ll feel better–too.
