Final farewell

I but knew you
in your dying years
spirit undimmed
until the final days

After caring for many
sacrificing more
than many others
would countenance

You were cared for
for an extra year
by those
close to you

Your smile
kept shining through
however low
you had gone

The sun was cold
the wind blew bitter
in that graveyard
by the shore

The sun had set
darkness was falling
until the breaking of the day
when the shadows flee away
