I never showed Helen my tears or let her see me cry even though she was dying saved my tears for when I was
alone
For had to make the decision that no one wants to make that of to let go agreed with Doctors and their staff
and that was not to let her know the only time I ever lied to her, that she'd be coming home knowing thisย ย not to be
true
But In that time I never showed my tears or let her see me cry the hardest thing I've ever had to
do
Many times I've asked her forgiveness even though I had no choice but In the end
Helen knew she wasn't coming home Helen never let on but what she did say
was I'm giving up can't do this any
more
I didn't have to ask her why Helen's quality of life with all the pain she suffered In life was so poor
But In all that time I never showed her my tears or let her see me cry had to be strong for the rest of the family
Helen was an Incredible lady who deserved so much more In life than she got
I tried so much In the 20 years we had together to look after her best I couldย ย just hope I did enough for
her
Hope It was enough I did for Helen In our twenty years we were together
