Mind Letting Go - Poem by RoseAnn V. Shawiak

Life lying in beds, all across hospital floors,
holding people in many stages of life on earth.

Some so close to death there is no longer any
room for death to escape.

It then takes away all breath and beats of each
heart, as the mind lets go and it disappears be-
yond the gates of heaven, alone.

    Close to death I view my passion wonderfully in this poem shared beautifully with reality. Mind disappears here and reaches to gates of heaven.10 (Report) Reply
