Stillness

In the early morning
When the only sounds
Were the awakening birds
The distant footering of careful nursing
The breathing of the ventilator
I sat with you
I held you
I stroked you
Stunned
Perceiving for you
Witnessing
On your behalf
The incomprehensible
The end of everything
As you drifted away
As you forgot life
As you let go

Drawn
Returned
Brought home
To where everyone comes from
To where everyone goes
Into the void
Into stillness
