'The Hospice' - Poem by David Bennett

'THE HOSPICE'

As he lay there in the hospice thinking his final thoughts,
Had he had a good life, or had it been just allright,
No matter how it had been his final hours were here,
Would anyone come to see him as death was really near,
He would rather see them right now, just to hold his hand.
Than them saying things so shallow at his funeral,
So go there now and see him, it will help him move along,
Help him to the next world help him to be strong,
People want to see you before they pass away,
So go and hold his hand now before he goes away!
Say nice things at his funeral!
But dont forget this thing! at that time it will be to late for him to comprehend!

David Bennett.

    David, this is such a heart wrenching poem. i visit a cancer hospice, and see so many people abandoned., and how the nurses try to reunite the families. love and knowing you matter takes care of a lot, more than the medicines. your poem brings out the importance of relationships and telling someone you care while they are alive.
