The Look Of Love by Scotston The Look Of Love by Scotston
This is what an almost sleepless night looks like. Keeping vigil beside the hospital bed that contains the dying body of my wonderful grandmother.  She woke up in severe pain several times during that night, so sleep was light and frequently broken to check on her.  That night, the three of us slept in the same whitewashed room. She was still fighting, but each day was harder for her. Every second was precious.

She died on the 20th February, 5 minutes to midnight.  She hung on for her birthday, then she wanted to let go and to no longer be in pain,  I fully supported that - it just still means we're left with the horrendous grief afterwards.

Goodnight, my swan. <3


I don't remember seeing fear in your eyes,
When you were fading
The day we said our goodbyes.

It's easy to say that there's a reason for this
Much harder to know that what we say is true;...
"Everything we hold could someday slip away"

The trouble with love is that it comes to an end.
I've got a feeling I'm gonna find you again,
Just in a place where love cannot die.
