Fam’ly are in hospice care—

Even my mother was there…

Some near death,

Others second breath,

Comes from intensive care!

Preparation for death,

Special trained staff kept…

palliative care

And information shared,

About grieving process steps!

Driving to client;s home,

Whatever the weather, it’s done…

finding our way

On new roads each day,

With G.P.S.,  on today’s runs!

Working hard and caring,

Family concerns are airing…

Comforting best

Prior to deaths,

A part of life people do share.

About Jonathan Caswell

Poet, author, servant of God the Heavenly father and the Lord Jesus Christ...working out his salvation with fear and trembling. - Not trusting in his own deeds, but depending totally upon the finished sacrificial work of Jesus Christ to be, by God's reckoning, a new creature, clothed in Christ's righteousness...which mortal humankind can never attain by their own weak efforts, apart from faith in Christ's work on our behalf. - College-educated, yet wise enough to see that what a man does will not be his ultimate identity nor affect how God sees him or her. - Called by God to do a very difficult thing...apart from God's grace, mercy and strength...to love the sinner (which we all--by nature--are) but hate the sin, which is only paid through Christ, God's Son, - My own God-given gift is that of being a Poet..showing that in all parts of life...God has a loving part in it...as hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.

    I really enjoyed this poem. It brings new thoughts to mind regarding dedicated care-workers. You’re on the road daily, keeping a constant schedule, trying to bring hope to others. I cared for only one, you care for many. Thank you!
