Last Prayer

I didn't plan to visit you yesterday.
I was going to see someone else
But her care giver had other plans.
And even when I arrived
I had others to see - we had visited earlier.
But I was told you were dying.
So I came to you and we talked
You accepted my prayer to God for you.
I left and you were calm and comfortable.
This morning you died.
Was my prayer you last in this life?
I pray today a thanksgiving
That you are released ...
