The Nurse



the nurse



they were taking me

i~ 

nearly

adrift on a sea of 

sleep when i saw a 

face who said time to 

go and I said

I know~but

You! the

Nurse under the

Cap~the

young 

face once

I knew

was grown and 

my

voice sang out~

I know you & your

Aunt Ti-Ti~

Elena, 

this 

young nurse she

grabbed my hand

and 

held it fast,

as

they walked me 

into 

dreamless

repose~her

hand holding mine

to the last..
