A part of me

A part of me died with you at 4 AM

A part of me watched as the nurses cleaned you up.

A part of me was there when she came in and took your wedding band and put it on with hers.

A part of me sat by your coffin in the hearse as it pulled up to your grave sight.

A part of me was buried with you as family and friends placed a piece of earth upon your coffin.

A part of me sat surrounded feeling so numb, while the world passed me by and time suddenly slowed down.

A part of me still stands here today, but a part of me is up there with him.
