Be happy, not because everything you see is good, but because you can see the good in everything.


Crippled

Incapable

Delayed

 

She never walked

Born without crucial bones

 

Listless

Dependant

Pointless

 

Her life held no meaning

For she could do nothing but lay there

 

Hot

Sick 

Depressing

 

Her death came so quickly

After years she finally let go

 

Painless

Eternal

Joyful

 

Now she dances with angels

Leaving her crippled body behind


The author's comments:

I was inspired to write this piece by my loved great-aunt that passed away recently. I had to remind myself of how happy she can finally be, and how much of a blessing it was that she finally came to rest, where she will never suffer.

@DuckLover I read a comment that you posted on another author’s article saying you wished people commented more on your work. I just want to say that this is a GORGEOUS piece and you deserve recognition. I read the description about your great aunt dying and how you knew she was in a better place. The last line really resonated with me. Beautiful job and keep it up.
