She never bitched and never cried

Though she lived in chronic pain

Now we have to say goodbye,

but know she’s right as rain

No more gasping, no more hurting,

No more oxygen line

She left her body in this world

Knowing we’d be fine

So dry your eyes and wipe your nose

Stop shedding all those tears

If she could stand all that she stood,

We shoudl ahve no fears

She no longer hurts, no longer gasps

no longer needs drugs to breathe

And all she wants for all of us

Is that we shall live in peace
