When She Left

When she left time stood still.
Years became months
Months became weeks
Weeks turned into days.
When she left

A new year like others
Her life vibrant and full
Partners traveling through life
Parties and plans
When she left

Sudden gloom fell
A curse, a cancer taking hold
Talk of stages and treatments
No parties and few plans
When she left

A battle ensues
Weekly injection of poison
All to beat a bigger one
Hope replaces parties, prayers supplant plans
When she left

A war lost
Vibrant and full become
Weak and hollow
Hospice and hopelessness
When she left

Another day dawns
A vigil gathers, last breath drawn
God gathers her up
We, I left in agony
When she left
