A Poem dedicated to my Aunty in the hospital:
If I Could (by the Rambling Pilot's Wife)
If I could take away your pain
And lay there in your place,
I would do it in a heart beat
Not a second I would waste.
If I could, I'd give you some relief
And take it all away...
Every break, cut, and bruise from you...
Even for a moment, an hour, or a day.
If I could give you a thousand kisses
For everything you've said and done (for me and everyone)
It would be too many to give in a lifetime...
In a billion setting suns!
Instead I'll call on God's angels
For my place to take
So you can consider yourself kissed,
As you sleep and when you wake.
Then I will know for certain,
Though I cannot take your place,
That you have angel's wings around you
As they breathe upon your face.
