    Bed Fifteen

    She is ready to surrender.
    With each shallow rise and fall of her chest,
    does she linger
    as she takes her final breath.
    Beginning her journey, does she dream
    of those she’ll meet again,
    looking forward to the reunions
    (and reconciliations).

    And does she realise as she goes-
    how much she mattered?
