GOODBYE MIRIAM
LAST WORDS

“Take care of yourself,”
I heard her say to you
That and
“Get me some juice.”
Later, as she rested in the living room,
she whispered her chicken soup recipe
to Deborah.
But mostly, that last day, she slept.
The next day, she was gone.
“Take care of yourself,”
was her last admonition.
Now, when I walk into that room
the empty space echoes
her loving advice:
“Take care of yourself!”
