The Shadow

Beep... beep... beep,
I look over and see his face,
Following the line on the screen,
He asks me why it beeps in that place,
I tell him in a soft voice, 
That shows the rate of my heart,
But before I could get all out,
I suddenly fall completely apart,
Dad whats wrong with you,
Why are you starting to cry,
I still don't have the courage to,
Tell him I'm bout to say goodbye,
Come over here son and sit beside me,
Grab my hand and hold it tight,
I want to feel the feelings,
That you have when you pray at night,
As my son begins to pray,
I see a shadow appear in the door,
The beeps start to beep faster,
I can't hold on to much more,
Son I love you very much, 
Please don't forget what I say,
The shadow grabs my hand,
And gently takes my life away,
Son I'm sorry I had to leave you,
This is not how I was suppose to end,  
I'll always be right beside you, 
Guiding you so we can be together again!!
