Curt’s breaths become shallow, As the sun sets on his life, Craig holds his hand; a silent farewell, Memories of fishing trips flood their minds. The room fills with a bittersweet melody, Of laughter, tears, and whispered goodbyes, Craig stays by his side till the very end, As Curt slips away; like a gentle tide. Their bond, like the fishing line cast into the water, Forever connected, never truly broken.
