Saying goodbye

Today i had to say good-bye to a close family member, he’s very ill in a hospice now cancer and dementia, not a good way to go, I’m moving away on the weekend so i went to see him for the final time before i leave. I didn’t want to go at first knowing how ill he is. I went in the end for my dad knowing he wanted me to go and say goodbye knowing i might one day regret not going, he was so ill he didn’t recognise me, he couldn’t stay awake and when he was you could tell he was in pain. 

It’s heart  breaking knowing that you’ll never see someone who help raise you all your life since birth again.
