LAST GOODBYES

the room was filled with people
children, grandchildren, great grandchildren
all saying their last goodbyes
she lay there in a white gown
her white curly hair neatly combed
a little lipstick
a dab of blush on her whitened face
there were no tears
stories of days gone by
everyone smiling and laughing
even this elderly wrinkled dying woman
had a smile on her face
i stood at the door…an observer
breathing in the love shared
by four generations of a family
each member bonded to the other
the woman waiting for the Angels to visit
to take her to the heavenly place
where she would once again
be with those who passed on
waiting for the day all those she cherished
would come home to join her
i passed her room the next day
her bed was empty
with bright white hospital sheets
waiting for the next patient

Artist's Description

HOSPITAL STORIES
As I walk through the corridors of the hospital when
I go to visit my husband, I often look into the rooms
of patients, and draw my own conclusions, and
write about what I feel and see…of course…loving
to write..my imagination often runs away with me
