My Arms Held You…

I held firm in the knowledge

In spite of this disease

Of your enduring value

So deeply known to me

Confused and oft bewildered

As into mist you slipped

Each day your thoughts grew dimmer

I felt so ill-equipped

This unrelenting stranger

Took more of you each day

No matter how I anguished

No matter how I’d pray

I’m thankful you were with me

And never left alone

I’m thankful my arms held you

When Spirit took you home…
