All These Things

ALL THESE THINGS

For our Mom:

“Dolores”

All the medications and home health visits

All the state of the art medical equipment

All the meals we cooked and ate together

All the naps taken on Sunday afternoons

All the visits from friends and neighbors

All the church going and soul searching

All the special food and shopping trips

All the love we pressed into her hands

All the care and concern we gave her

All the meows from Baby and Dolly

All the hospitals and there were four

All the trust we put into technology

All the questions for all the doctors

All the time spent in hospital rooms

All the days since her first surgery

All the prayers for her well-being

All the times we cried out of fear

All the times we said I love you

All the cleaning out of catheters

All the doctors and surgeons

All the fun we had together

All the laughter we shared

All the talking and sharing

All the plans we had

All the hope we felt

All the hugs

All the tears

Could not

Save

Her
