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!”
