Corporate grief erupts in loveIn_the_doctors__office.JPG
Pent up goodbyes just saying thanks
For part of a life that’s not the end
And hugs transcend.
They leave well while others fight
For perpetual survival in the future beyond
As images merge in confusion’s fears
And laughter’s tears.
Five years exploring multiple options
In the search for meaning upholding care
While the heartless say just let them go
Much valued though.
Wandering feet on restless legs
Prepare for the journey of departure
Still uncertain, but the divine GPS
Overrides the guess.

Thoughts on leaving the Wisdom Hospice, Rochester, UK, blending personal sentiments with observed farewells over the years.
