Seeing A Friend Off


I sat beside him
-a friend dying.
I held his hand
but it seemed
he was unaware
of who his
last Earthly
contact was.

In a hospital bed
busy staff on
other tasks.
No blame on
them.Only
I could see
him off-
Where?

    It is a true friend that stays til the end....I hope you find comfort knowing you gave him a final farewell. Your poem speaks softly, and sweetly to my soul. Scripted with such truth, it stirs in my heart. PEACE (Report) Reply
