This was written for those that lost someone close to them too soon.
Waiting so long

To hold a package so dear

Keep them safe

Keeping them near

Loving them with all you have

Cherishing them with everything

Seeing how fragile they are

Yet wanting them still

Protecting them

Only to struggle

Faltering and fail

You hold them near

Comfort them fearing

That you may never see them grow

Only to watch that thread break

Left with a shell

Once full of promise and life

Now empty and devoid of light
