Desires of Grief

I wish I could have been everything to you. 

I wanted to be the IV 

dripping providing

nourishment you needed,

from my body 

to yours. 

I wanted to be the chemo. 

Only pushing you as far

As you could go. 

Breaking you down 

To build you up. 

I wanted to be God. 

Easing your pain,

Hugging you forever,

Kissing your cheek,

And calling you home.
