Promised Land

I held your hand as

you drew your last breath,

a strange sensation

overwhelmed me as I wept.

One which I found hard

to describe or explain,

it was like an electric shock

had released all of your pain.

Now years later

when I think of your passing,

I believe it was your spirit

and I regard it a blessing

that I was there

to hold your hand

when you departed

for the promised land.
