The wait

It is not so much death that most fear,
for as we age I believe we face that reality squarely,
to be born is to die, a simple fact that can’t be forgotten,
no matter what our beliefs, we learn to accept death.

The process is another matter entirely,
for many it can takes years to finally let go,
in nursing homes, or on beds of pain,
the waiting can be insufferable
for those on their last few miles of life,
as well as for those who love them.

Beliefs are important, though none can be proven,
so little can in this life, when it comes to questions that are important,
more than just how things work, but the ‘why’s”
that can torture us all at times.

I believe not because I fear death and non-existence,
no I have faith because the alternataive makes no sense,
of which many will not agree I am sure.

Each time of life has its meaning, and I believe old age
and how we die and deal with it very important.

It also allows others to stretch in the caring and comforting,
tiring as that may be.  It is their finale gift to us, this allowing us to care,
and will be mine to pass on if I do not die quickly and cleanly.

I hope and pray for the gift to be gracious and patient,
and if not, I pray that those who care for me
will be.

It is a joy to care for others; the heart seems to breathe when doing so,
as if we are made to serve others and touch their divinity more deeply
as well as to have our souls touched back deeper still.

No, it is hard, but most things in life that have meaning are,
for it is painful to slowly allow the heart to take deep breaths
of compassion and empathy for others,
as well as to allow the same to be given back,
of which most of us will have to accept and hopefully embrace
when our time comes,
to graciously allow others of simply care, comfort and love us.

    I am not there; I do not sleep.

Wonderful M-D. I have seen much death in my life. Here is all I have to say about it. I have enough faith not to be afraid of it. Dying itself is another thing all together. I feel this is just human nature.


When you were born, you cried
and the world rejoiced.
Live your life
so that when you die,
the world cries and you rejoice.
