I wrote this poem to read at my Dad's funeral service. He died in 2010 of aspiration pneumonia/respiratory failure.

 You fought death

At every turn

While for Heaven

Your spirit did yearn


You thought God

Was moving slow

Asking us to

Let you go


Your legs were contracted

You could not walk

At the end

You could no longer talk


You were far sicker

Than anyone knew

But you had faith God

Would carry you through


Loved ones in Heaven

Their faces you did see

Holding your hand up

Saying to God come get me


But family here

You were not ready to forget

You would then shake your head

And say no not yet


You gave a good fight

But when your time came

God sent the death angel

Your life to claim


At the moment of death

Your eyes filled with delight

Your spirit was set free

For its Heavenly flight


You are now in Heaven

Your treasures you can view

I hope you knew

How much we loved you

A lovely tribute.

My father contracted pneumonia twice while recovering from bypass surgery and finally gave in after five months.
