A Tribute

 

She came to the ICU
in the room next to mine
a flurry of activity
at 1:00 p.m.
a bed wheeled out
a mopping up, a cleaning up

 

I live to observe
and pay a first tribute
In the tumult of her activities
may she rest in peace
The God of all-knowing
grant her peace
in her wearied soul's journey
after a care-worn life
