Time to let this tired old body rest

Yes, I have been preoccupied with thoughts about death lately. And no I am not depressed. Having elderly parents changes your perspective as they age and can no longer fight off illness and injury the way they used to.

When there's nothing more to be done,
when there's nothing left to say.
Feeling overwhelmed by
and helplessness.
Wishing the last part of the journey
could be quicker,
while wishing the
journey didn't have to end

When there's nothing more to be done,
nothing left to say,
except goodbye,
we will miss you,
and thank you.
You have earned your rest.

It's time to let your body rest.
