I know a woman who
has fought the fight of losing weight
throughout her years.
Often a gain in pounds
has almost led to tears.
Now, at last, she’s found reprieve.
It’s s little hard to believe
she’s found it in a place
that few but her would even look.
Not long ago
she was assigned to hospice care
yet her appetite stays unaffected there.
She is taking her usual hunger there –
plus her sense of humor.
I’ll have just one more scoop. Please!”
