Thomas, first thank you for this lovely tanka dedicated to me, I appreciate that so much. I am a Palliative Care Nurse, which means I care for people at the end of their lives, often being the last person they see in this world, that is a big responsibility, I am humbled by it, and for some reason very good at it, I have the compassion for the dying and the family waiting, I have been asked by the dying often, are you an angel, and I answer yes, faving this one for sure ~

it's lovely, Thomas. My sister is a nurse and this fits her to a tee.
