Final Days

There was enough time to talk things through

Not much was left unsaid.

The pain was mostly controlled in the end

Your rest a welcome respite.

The waiting endless yet impossibly brief

The sterile rooms felt sacred.

Your death like your life mostly on your terms

Leaving memories and love to sustain us.
