Hollowed

3 posts in this topic

Hollowed

The process of dying can be long and arduous

both for the care giver's

as well for the one nearing his or her end.

There seems to be a waiting,

a silence that is present,

as if the soul is being hollowed out

becoming free of all that holds it back.

So little we understand,

all we can do is go forward in trust,

bearing with whatever comes

and hopefully letting go

with grace when the call comes.

“ When it comes time to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with the fear of death, so when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way. Sing your death song, and die like a hero going home. ”

Chief Aupumut, Mohican. 1725

Very nice, I think I may write a death song or a poem.....would be a good meditation.
