  • That time when you were strong,
    and fixed fences,
    and told stories

    That time when you carried me on your shoulders
    and made me feel invincible,
    that I could reach the sky

    That time when you became so weak,
    and we were so terrified
    so afraid of what's to come

    That time when you started showing the signs
    Confusing memories,
    disoriented mind

    That time when I went home,
    said hello,
    and yet, you couldn't remember who I am

    That time when we felt you were starting to lose the battle
    so afraid to lose you,
    yet almost thankful that your misery would soon be over

    That time when you had taken your last breath
    and you weren't there anymore;
    the disease had taken you away from us.
