The End & The Beginning

As I sit with my hospice patients and their familiesTammy & Mom

Helping them prepare

For the end of their loved one’s Earthly life

I sit with them knowing

That they feel this is “The End.”

Yet it is not

Their words and deeds live on in our memories of them

Those memories signal the beginning of a new era

When their families must begin learning

how to live without them

how to carry their everlasting memory in their hearts

how to keep those memories alive

with that gift of who they were for them in their hearts

The End of their era here

The Beginning of a new era

when their memories live on as their forever gift to us all.
