my mother is precious to me, 

and now, 

as she moves into her final days, 

my sorrow is visceral. 

she held the hand 

of the emergency doctor last night, 

and said she appreciated being told straight 

that she was passing,

what a relief, 

she was weary and ready. 

i watched her pat the doctor's hand 

and realised as ever, 

Mum was comforting her.
