Vigil

Sitting, watching, waiting.

Time.

Stories.

History.

Friends.

Memories.

Jokes.

Prayers.

Food.

Coffee.

Laughter.

Tears.

No regrets.

Nothing left unsaid.

Can he hear us?

Maybe.

Doctors.

Nurses.

Staff.

Other families.

Quiet.

Peaceful.

Calm.

Sleep.

Seconds.

Minutes.

Hours.

Days.

Obituary.

Press-release.

Planning.

Surreal.

Is this really happening?

Yes.

Writing.

Remembering.

Anecdotes we’ve never heard before.

Not the first family to have gone through this,

And not the last.

Perspective.

Blessings.

Smiles.

Son.

Brother.

Nephew.

Husband.

Father.

Uncle.

Grandfather.

Patriarch.

Role model.

Hero.

Humble servant.

Waiting.

Keeping watch.

Thankful.

Doctors say it’s just a matter of time.

In God’s hands now, as it always has been.

His will, be done.
