The last word

The one thing we all may wish for,



is that last moment

when the person we love

leaves us with that phrase

those open doors

through which

we can

move forward-

words of wisdom,

of quiet, subtle

maybe untold love.

And we

can be



Life gives you

what it gives you-

so I pulled the comforter snug

around his shoulders

letting my words

slide gently

from my mouth

to his ears –


and set him free.


At least I will believe
