Thoughts at the Moment of my Death

 

To relax into Death

Knowing it is natural

Knowing it is unavoidable

Knowing it is happening.

 

To relax into Death

Dying with comfort of mind & spirit.

 

To relax into Death

Life’s timeline now ending

Some dreams realized – – others not

It is OK.

 

To relax into Death

The journey nears its end

The chance of being

The flicker of the flame of life

Growing dim.

 

To relax into Death

One last breath

The last of the air that gives life

The last moment of Living

Taken within

Finished

Death.

 

Oh Glorious Passing

That comes with such:

          Grace

          Stillness

          Peace

          For all.

Memories.

    This sums up the end of life for my dear friend Becky, whose funeral was Saturday. How beautifully stated!
