Bound by this machine
of bones and muscles.
She fulfills her duty of living.
Waiting to be retired
from the job of breathing
for those who are equally keen
to say goodbye.
But have to bear with her
because she is the need
of the hour.
Only time will know
who was happier
to see her go,
she or those
around her.
