The last words you heard were I love you.
There were no words that we left unsaid.
I was sad you were finally leaving,
Last gasps from a hospital bed.

Despite the unlikely surroundings,
So clinical, stark and so bare,
As you left, we shared memorable moments,
And I knew that you knew that I cared.

I held your hand fast, my arms round you,
As I emptied my heart in your ear.
You squeezed my hand gently, said thank you,
And then you were no longer here.

For my grandpa – my hero – who died peacefully in my arms today and will reside forever in my heart.
