Last Days

As the twilight of your life unfolds
and death steps in to take his hold
I cling to you, hand in hand
and gaze into your eyes;
soon, I know, you’ll leave,
then I shall grieve...
until then
we are

This is how we often saw them - hand in hand...and so they were until his end - five months ago today. I love you Mom and Dad.

  1. Your poem profoundly touch my heart.
    It vividly brought back the memories of those last days.
    Death may have separated us temporarily
    but our hearts are united forever. love Mom
