Reflections on Death

Five short hours on call. What I saw:

Death is Holy.
Death is hard
when unexpected,
Death brings such pain
to the left behind.
Death can heal
wounded relationships, or
Death can break
them open wide.
Some die alone,
with just the angels,
Some die surrounded
by those they love.
Death is the color of sadness
sometimes tinted with shades of joy.
Death is Holy.
