Heart Gift -
A Gift From the Heart
Grand-child’s eyes flutter open,
a glimmer of hope, weak slight smile
recognizing olde ’twampa.
Young heart on ill last legs
young hand squeezes older hand
reclining side by side.
will try very hard to live a full,
worthwhile, generous, life”;
as relatively healthy older heart
chockablock full of experience is,
swapped out for dying failing younger one,
a life wanes, gladly laid down for
grandchild, daughter or sons that
they might experience many more years.
A ’twampa dad’s
gift from the heart
of a heart in heartbeat,
as life goes merrily on for another generation
the ultimate gift of life, an honourable
Right-to-die to make way.
