Minutes, Hours, Days

Minutes seems like hours
Hours seems like days
Days seems like fleeting moments in time.
So many precious moments pass thru a persons mind
The memories of good times

Yet I still wonder as He lays there
Is he remembering his time as a Soldier or
The precious times he spent with Family
I really pray it's not the struggles endured

All medical advisors say it could be ,
minutes, hours or a couple days
We all see the few fleeting moments he knows we are here
We all believe his hands are already in the hands of the Creator.

Love has no boundries
He has loved us
As we have and shall love Him until his final breathe
A Veteran ,Father, a Brother, and True Friend to many
Even though we have shared much and have Cherished Memories

This is a sad time mixed with glad times knowing he will no longer suffer pain

Hopefully anyone who reads this understands
Tomorrow is never promised
Each day should be lived to the fullest

We called him Beans because he liked them and never griped about the chow,
One mourning on waking he went to the latrine
I went for chow
He never made it
A sniper took him out
Choices made
one of us went left
the other right..
as simple as that.
Did he have the time to reflect
to even remember dyin'
the medics say no
yet I still wonder fifty+ yrs later
if he had the time to remember
the life he was losing-
before entering his new one.

Prayers go out to all who have lost someone close to them.

Good day
My younger brother shot himself
This was found in my Mom's purse after her passing
Death is nothing at all. I have only slipped away into
the next room
Whatever we were to each other ,we still are
Call me by my old familiar name. Speak to me
in the same easy way you always have.
Laugh as we always laughed
at the little jokes we enjoyed together.
Play, smile, think of me pray for me.
Life means all that it ever meant.
It is the same as it ever was.
There is absolute unbroken continuity.
Why should I be out of your mind because
I am out of your sight?
I am but waiting for you, for an interval, somewhere
very near, just around the corner.
All is well, Nothing is past. Nothing has been lost/
One brief moment and all will be as it was before-----
only better. Infinitely happier.
We will be one ,together forever.

On the bottom of this paper clipping My Mom
glued a piece of paper with my brothers name to it.
Much Peace and Love to you all
