before you go...

what can i possibly say to you
now that death is knocking at your door?
do i relentlessly tell you how much "i love you"
or simply continue to pray that
you rest your head softly
on the pillow of your breath
and for JAH to gently cradle you
in the palm of his hands
as you prepare to enter
the gates of Zion.

I feel the love. Thanks soooo much for your kind words. For those wondering, while my friend BJ is still living with an incurable form of cancer (thanks for all the angel cards you bless her with), another close friend has been recently diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. So here I am, making the most of what time he has remaining, which is estimated to be 2 weeks.

Exhaling, Se'lah.
