i like you
you are candid and smart and outspoken
we are afraid to know that you are dying
it is obvious
and you are speaking clearly with your words
chosen from the
courage of the veins in your heart
with so much
bravery with so much brevity
you are penning
this
requiem
without a dent of regret
whatsoever

Like the double use of unbelievably...because it really still is, and the reference to the help and its nature is very good observation, calling a spade a spade. An excellent poem, timely, needed. Thanks, Sandra H
