Her hands shook
as they wheeled
him away.
Had his lips
been dry? 
Had his body
Had he longed
for a touch
against his
fragile skin? 
Could she
have done more
to relieve
his pain? 
Could she
have loved him more, 
needed him more, 
begged him more
to stay? 
Her head swam
in the deafening silence
of guilt and sorrow
as she
buried herself
for feeling

    My brothers and I had so many questions as my Dad spent his last night in Hospice. I left an hour before he passed and thought I should have stayed a while longer. This touches.
