Her life was ending and they all knew it.
Huddled around the bed in the darkened room they watched as she lay quietly awaiting the inevitable.
A pause in her breathing, her heart slowing, they stood close and held her hand as she slipped away.
There was peace in that moment; months of fighting the battle were suddenly replaced by calm.
A new beginning.

Endings such as this so bittersweet. The gift of release for her, a profound sense of loss that those remaining will live with forever. Strong writing.
Thank you Josie. Having stood at that bedside just 6 months ago I found writing this piece a very personal experience that took me back to that place once again. I appreciate your kind comment.
Beautifully written, Andrew.
Thank you so much Jayne.
