Reflections on my time in hospice with a dear one. This came to me when I could not sleep for attempting to cope with grief.

Come, Death, come ---
Take her to your arms.

See the mottled arms and legs
Crying out to be dismissed.

Limp they lie, resigned to fate
Cradled up in fetal state.

Now, the eyes, once clear, are gone
Covered o'er in listless gaze.

Come, Death, come ---
Take not your time. Be quick.

Loos'n the spirit that once was here
Set free the soul enclosed within.

Do justice by your mighty hand
Set free the dove within.

Come, Death, come.

Raw emotion here - no need to explain. Effectively penned sadness - I'm sorry for your loss.

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla. :(
