We Didn't Know August 24, 2012

by Rosemary Johnson Baltimore, MD USA

The day started out as planned
We didn't know
A voice mail from Ness
Brought me to you side
You made your decision
To go home and lie in your own bed
And we didn't know
You spoke words of wisdom to Quan
He didn't know
You encouraged little Andre
And he didn't know
Your baby girl Channel
You spoke of her accomplishments
She didn't know
Craig heard how proud you were of him
Yet he didn't know
You lead us in reciting the 23rd psalm
We didn't know
We took you home
Ness did everything she could
To ensure your comfort
She gave you the meds
She held you hand
She talked to you until you calmed
Still she didn't know
I looked in your eyes as you took your last breath
I didn't know
That God would call you home
