Poem -

Mum

I never got to say bye mum
why was it like that 
I never got to ask why mum
why was it like that 

I never had a choice mum
why was it like that
life support machine noise mum 
why was it like that 

it was all a blur mum
you took a bad turn mum
the machines went off 
I lost my breathe 
never imagined my mums life 
turned out to be death 

I can’t even find the words to say 
how I wish I could of saved you how many times I pray 
you was crying out for help only now I see 
the guilt I feel will always stay with me 

42 years old too young to die 
the kids you left behind, god please tell me why 
the tears will never end I’ll always cry 
I lost half of me the day I said goodbye
