A gut-wrenching piece – based on personal experience of watching a loved one.

~~~

Formerly …

So proud and assured, in

self-sufficient autonomy.

Strong and decisive

motivated, purposeful

~~~

Finally …

Bowed and bemused

Battered and bruised

‘Til … broken – just

A shadow of himself

~~~

Threadbare …

grip on reality

as hopes fade

and shadows lengthen

on earth’s brief day

~~~

(slightly over 3 weeks later)

~~~

Now …

In light incomprehensible

and solace indescribable

entering the Presence

of Majesty & Love

~~~
