TO MEET AGAIN

TO MEET AGAIN

A Poem by Terry Collett
"

A MOTHER'S SUDDEN DEATH

"




Your mother died
a peaceful death
no heart attack

no fight
for breath
no death rattle

into the night
just a sudden
departure

like a switched out light
all her long life
concluding in this

a gentle going
death’s soft kiss
a daughter

at her mother’s
bedside
holding her hand

her dementia
needed Teddy
held there

at the end
your mother
died suddenly

to an unexpected
sleep and rest
all worries

and anxieties
gone away
all hoping

and believing
to meet again
some day.
