END OF LIFE

What do you see
what can you hear

Expression of pain vanishes from there face
The secounds pass by as the cannula sites
The flush is administered and the ampule is opened
The syringe draws the drug which then flows through the vein
But the moment is gone and the eyes look away .

What do you see now
What can you hear

A smile on the face as they draw there last breath
Which way do you go is it up or is it down
In the face of the religions who hold onto text of many dark places of solitude and unrest .
Or will you be welcomed through a Great Pearly Gate in to the garden of heaven or is it to late .

All desperate measures a fight for life
But no heart is beating
No blood to go round this broken old body that has done all its rounds

Where have you gone
Where are you now
Have you left us already or are you still around

When do we stop
How long has it been
Over ten minutes its hard to believe

Decision to make now
Oh its so hard
Relatives waiting
No victory here , desperation as you hear the first tear

Calling it now
Well it has to be done
Oh i feel so empty , doubts in my mind
Look at the clock now it has moved on so much
Time waits for no one

Hands of the chest
Defib away
Switch off the oxygen and call it a day

Where have you gone now
Now what can you see …….

END OF LIFE
