her last moments

her last moments
though they fade
into a haze of pain
and its avoidance.
her heart, mind and
spirit recollect.
she cherishes and fears.
with courage and
we around her pray.
tears forever
we ask why
what the purpose
Of it all is.
then we think of her.
waiting. struggling
for life's breath to
sustain her.
the answer

About Me

My photo
i am older than dirt and proud of it!!!! i have managed to incorporate my eternal 60's nation spirit with the high tech 21st century world. i am an artist/writer, who dabbles in rhyme, and, sometimes, reason. my passions are my husband, who is truly the wind that ruffles my sails, animals rights, yoga, the beach, waking up in the morning. i find inspiration in too many things to list, and far too many more to remember. i have added sketching, watercolor painting, and photography to my ways of expressing joy and gratitude. from living with a chronic illness, i have learned the beauty of each day, and treat each as another sun salutation, and another chance. P.S. all painting, poems and photographs are my originals karen Lyons kalmenson
