Hospice

Hospice...
A liberating thing...
A gift of peace...
A beacon of light
On the road to death...

Mama and I thank you...

    less is more, as they say. this is beautiful, touching, and left a great impression upon my heart.

    death toois a light for those of us left behind, if we set our mind to it. it helps us to appreciate the dance, to embrace what it is all the more. your short poem speaks large!
