“Dying Love”

Turner, Erin RN, OCN

doi: 10.1097/01.COT.0000369701.18971.f9

The steady ticks of the precious time

The frequent drips of soothing medicine

The slowing breath of a dying love

The pleasant warmth of a gathered family

The faint scent of exhaustion

The slowing breaths of a dying love

The tender touch of an aching mate

The last sweet kiss of an epic romance

The slowing breath of a dying love

The gentle stream of a falling tear

The peaceful passage into death… here.
