Please Take Me Home - Poem by Barbara Haskell

My soul has watched
the immeasurable pain
that this body endures.
Watching through the trials
of different medicants and surgeries,
searching for that judge,
who will grant a pardon
or at least, some leniency.
Now, for the fifth time,
sobbing from the depths of soul,
body has awakened, begging God,
Please, please take me home.
