To Lie In Wait - Poem by Don Pengilly

To Lie in wait for death
While cancer has its sway
With family surrounding her
Outside a gloomy day
The nurses flying past the door
The wards so full of pain
Other patients walk about
Each day to them is gain

Give credit to the nurses
And other staff there to
Their dedication to there work
Much more not seen they do
Dear dad he sits there by her side
With anguish in his heart
As his beloved wife
Will soon this life depart

The pain subdued with medics
And sleep is with her now
She breaths and hangs on to her life
And wakes when time allow
A smile she gives to each she sees
At peace she lies there still
Each precious moment with her
Until her life fulfil

She leaves with us such memories
Of a life so full of grace
Not a word of condemnation
Always a smile upon her face
She always sees the good in you
And never criticized
As her children we will not forget
Not a thing of her despised
