She’s Dying

Hospice

The call finally comes.

“We’re taking her

off the ventilator

tomorrow.

Can you come?”

Hesitation.

Take in

reality.

Take in

61 years

of fighting.

Take in

years of

turmoil.

Go,

don’t go?

Yin & Yang,

Just like the

61 years.

Is her troubled

spirit

so different

then mine?

Just a few

genes and

9 years

separate us.

Go in peace.

May your

next life

be full.
