Trying to capture those last moments of a loved one’s earthly journey

Observing patiently,

Feeling helplessly

frustration’s pangs.

Unfolding agony

compounding misery

as life hangs precariously

in the balance.

~~~

Declining speedily,

Calling desperately

for memory’s succour.

Engaging sympathy

sustaining mercy

as death waits menacingly

in the wings

~~~

Caring tenderly,

Touching gently

fevered brow.

Hearing spiritually

bringing clarity

as angels sing triumphantly

their welcome song

~~~

Releasing into realms unknown

~~~
