The Dying – The Living

Tammy & Ayla at her naming

In hospice, as we help our patients prepare for death

I’m asked always what can be done so it doesn’t hurt so much, yet

All I can offer is to let yourself feel

Whatever you need to, as you journey through the ordeal

For though it is a transference of our soul from here to there

So much feels left behind down here;

And while we cannot take physical things with us to the heavens

What we can take are the memories, lessons and love, not the lemons.

So eat your fill and learn as much as you can,

Make memories that live on in your eternal soul, so that your exit plan

Is one of a life well lived with absolutely no regrets,

For you’re only here on loan a little while, yet you can make it as good as it gets.
