To be able to say,
"I had a good life,
a wonderful journey,
thank you."

Takes the sting away,
disarms death,
an understanding that
it's been good.

Not all the hoohah,
but the understanding
that life is a gift,
each and every breath of it.

Each and every crumb of it,
dispensed so elegantly,
simple, yet unfathomable
while yet alive.
