Did he know how much we loved him?
In those final seconds did he know?
Did he think it was the end?
Did he know we were letting him go?
Did he wonder as he fell asleep
What was happening, why we were so sad?
Did he know?
Did he feel cheated or feel release?
Did he faithfully trust us he always had?
Did he just follow, as we always led?
Did he say goodbye as he left us behind?
Did we do enough to honour his life?
Did we do enough to ease his way?
Did he know that it broke our hearts and
As he left he took a piece of us with him….
