Poem 24- The end at last

It has been a journey

Like all journeys

There is a beginning and an end

And now the end has come

I curl up to it and hold it in my heart

I carry the words and the flow and the longing

My back hurts

My head nods

My eyes can no longer see

I imagine the sleep I will enter into

As soon as this is complete

And I slow

Just a tad

My companion Duke the cat

Slumbers without me

My bed calls to me

And I will end this marathon here

In a cautious and grateful

Good night, good morning and good Lord I am glad it is done!
