More Life and Death

There is something about witnessing a death that puts life into perspective.

Pulse fades
Breaths slip
And what was, still is, but isn’t

Breaths catch
Tears come
And Truth sets in

Sobs begin
Jaws shake
Arms reach out for something, someone

Even if you didn’t know him
You can feel the presence of this man
As his family holds his hand
In this body, in the bed, minutes ago lived a man -who now is dead.
