RECENTLY (IN MY BIRTHING SEASON -
I HAVE BEEN CONTACTED BY MY ELDERS)
who share their joy when each day dawns
and endless pleasure to make it to night
They assure me they are ready for sudden endings
"Everything up to now has been a gift-
the rest is gravy!"Now i know them
as creatures of joy and laughter.
One says he trusts he is watching his beloved baseball
when that final heartbeat leaves.Another wants
to walk along her beach ,and let wind and waves take her away
Both are barely ambulatory.All they have made on this earth
has lifted others into happiness.They are of good spirit,
content with passages and sudden endings of stories like these.
