He Grew Thinner by the Day

He grew thinner by the day, as the cancer ate him away, and, ALL we could do, was to stand by, and watch him die.  He grew thinner by the day, toward the end, he didn’t even have enough strength to lift up his head, or to get up, as we walked into the house, he just stayed LIMP on the floors.

He grew thinner by the day, and, it pains me to watch him wither away like that, but I couldn’t find it in my heart, to be cruel, and put him to sleep.  He grew thinner by the day, and, in the end, he breathed in his very LAST and FINAL breath, and that, was the end, of his suffering.

He grew thinner by the day, in the end, he’d become NO more than a skeleton of a man, and, his family couldn’t do anything about it, all they could, was to cover their mouths, and sob silently, as he was lifted to the mortuary………
