Sad is the day when you realize that many want to welcome you into the world but very few want to hold your hand as you leave it. No one should have to die alone! As a physician I can’t begin to tell you how many hands I have held.
Some patients had no one but many had family that couldn’t be bothered. Why? It breaks my heart that the end of life can be like this for so many.
If anyone has a clue please do tell me. I have a story I will post soon about my patient.
I wish I had been told how it would be when I got this old.
I would really have let myself feel more love. In my condition the time left is just not enough!
They say I am not someone they can save. They say I should plan for my grave.
I really thought I had time to live some more!
But with work as my priority I never explored what love could have offered me?
I made no friends and I have no family
I have a weak heart and I can barely breathe. I’m dying alone and will then be 6 feet beneath.
During my life I could buy it all; cars, houses, fancy clothes from the mall.
Oh there were some that tried to get close to me. I couldn’t trust them though because they wanted to steal from me.
Oh so I thought
I wish I could return everything I bought
Just to have at least one friend
To hold my hand now at the end
Last breath I shall take right now
If only I could do it all again somehow
Happy New Year my beautiful readers. What will we do different this year? While we plan to make more tangible riches let’s not forget about the riches of the soul- peace, integrity, contentment. Money can buy many things but it can’t buy us more time at the end.Live life well! Sending you love and hugs from Brooklyn.
The numbers are rising. Wear a mask cause this is real. Get the booster to get 80% protection. Trust me getting Covid when vaccinated you do way better than if not vaccinated. I work in the medical field. Very sad indeed. Getting sick and recovering is preferred to getting sick and dying without friends or family in a hospital. These are the facts.
It was time for my last rites but I couldn’t seem to get it right.
I just wanted to let go so I did just like Van Gogh
No last rites were said for me
What will happen now to me.?
Working in a hospital makes me think about all those that passed on. Covid took so much. Some people feared that Covid would kill them so they took their own lives instead. It’s sad. We only get one life so let’s make it the best one. Do your part in keeping safe.
