Life and Death

My granddaughters were here 2 weeks ago.

Their squeals and giggles filled our home.

My daughter slept as much as she could,

While grandpa and grammy stood guard.

Macaroni and cheese


That makes life sweet.

And then I visited my mom.

She hates mac and cheese.

She abhors corndogs.

But that is what they feed her

In her “assisted” living.

She wants to die.

I see it in her eyes.

I kiss her face and ask God

That she not suffer.

Life and death…

Help me support both.
