Graceful Exit

would that death
were a planned event
no loose ends
affairs put in order
duties transferred
things wrapped up
much like jobs you depart

an escape from this world
that created no hardships
for those left behind
people prepared to face your demise
suffering only a delicate melancholy
rather than a devastating loss
pulling them under

an easy, loving goodbye
no pain to speak of
and feeling all right
when our current reality
abruptly stops for us and them
the finale foretold
gracefully accepted

    1. I imagine it can be in those situations where people are prepared for it, along with a firm belief that there always comes a time for things to end. But like Sadje mentioned, are we ready to die? On some level, perhaps some are but I would guess most are not.
