Lying down she sleeps
So still So sick So weak
She opens her eyes
All you can see is emptiness inside
She does not speak
I stand over her
Like a guardian angel
You can feel her sorrow
You can see her pain
Her body is wearing down
Her mind becoming numb
You want to help
But cannot
You try to help
But fail
She is suffering
While you are watching
I stand here still
So strong So healthy
I open my mouth
I cannot speak.

Your poem is fantastic! I can feel the sorrow and I love how descriptive it is.
