You are the reason,
For my genesis,
From your womb,
To this punishing world,
You have been the strongest,
The pillar that held me together.
We have crossed so many chasms,
Overcome so many battles.
Today, when I see you fall,
It kills a bit of my soul,
The realization that the clock,
Is ticking faster, the disintegration,
In front of my eyes, physical and mental,
The anguish that this is causing me,
The truth that none of the Gods or Goddesses,
Are going to come down to help.
Rage that is building within me,
As I am powerless to make you heal.
I stand defeated and broken.
Everytime, I have managed to turn the tide.
But this seems to be a brutal phase.
All I can do is pray and hope,
That things change,
Every time I see you fall,
A piece of my soul dies.
Hoping tomorrow brings light!
Sleep well, I shall stay awake,
I will be there by your side,
Sleep well…sleep well mother.
