The Pain Of Seeing You Leave, Is Less Than The Pain Of Watching You Suffer
I wrote this after my sister Helen died, we had fallen out for 4 months over something trivial and hadn't talked or saw each other. and I spent the last seven days of her life, looking at her laying in a coma in a hospital bed on life support systems, until they switched it all off and she passed away at 7p.m. on Thursday 26th April 2012.

The Pain Of Seeing You Leave, Is Less Than The Pain Of Watching You Suffer
R Duncan

The pain of seeing you leave, is less than the pain of watching you suffer

Sitting at your bedside looking at you in your sleep
The tubes and wires attached to you cut my heart so deep
It wasn't nice to see you suffer, it wasn't nice to see your pain
But now you've left and gone to heaven, we'll meet some day again

The pain of seeing you leave, is less than the pain of watching you suffer
you'll always be my big sister I'll always be your young brother
I wish that we had that moment to get over our stupid quarrel
I always said I'll phoneyou, I'll wait until tomorrow

But alas it never happened I never made that call
If we could've each said sorry, such a small word that is all
But now you've gone and left me, with maybees and might have beens
I'll always love you sister, I'll see you in my dreams.

I'm Sorry, Goodbye God Bless. Rest In Peace Helen X
