Death Mask Preparations

 

 

Is it the fear you feel

or is it the certainty?

As the old crone winds down

piece by crooked piece,

And sees life different now

through dimming eyes.

 

It all seems to be coming full circle

now for them, lying in their musty

But homely beds, and taking days by

the day and nights by the night.

 

The unconditional love that was supposed to bathe

them has probably failed this time, or has it?

You don’t really know, do you?

The sage, the adviser, the confidante,

will that all be gone when.....

That time will be coming sooner than not.
