Prim and well behaved,

niminy-piminy gal:

my most loved patient.

 

Took your medicines

althought you hated its taste,

just to indulge me.

 

Illness didn’t take

Your calmed fortitude away

any single day.

 

I was not prepared

to end tonight’s wake, staring

at an empty bed.

 

I could do nothing

to halt your early farewell. 

Guilt is haunting me.
