They Came

They came,
To visit her,
On her sick bed,
They came to comfort her,
As she ailed,
As she bravely bore her sickness.
They came,
And then they left…

And when they left,
They talked,
And they said that,
They have given her days to live,
They have given her months to live,
They have given her years to leave,
Yet she lived for days,
Yet she lived for months,
Yet she lived for years,
Yet she never left this world,
And she is still living up to today.

They don’t know now what to say,
They have instead kept quiet,
For our patient,
Has grown healthier,
And stronger,
Over time.
Just be careful,
Just be aware,
Of those people,
Who gives you days to live,
Who gives you months to live,
Who gives you years to leave this world,
For they are not God,
And they willl never be.
Just live and love your life,
And ignore them…
