How fortunate that I awake without pain,

While others less fortunate still lie in bed.

Some need a lifetime of assistance to live,

And I pray for those that offer this service.


I 've seen brave people accept their condition,

And for years I witnessed that hope never wained.

They were an inspiration to all who came,

And when death finally claimed them, God held their hand.

We all face trials differently as Jude Forese said, it depends on our state of mind and our beliefs... It is has much to do with our own personal path.

For yourself, this was a lovely testament George

So many have to suffer horribly before the sweetness of death claims them. I still think this dying proposition could have been thought out a little better.
