Where the Journey Started


You left for the hospital
On a bright Monday morning,
Although you never really liked
The place that you were going.

You refused to go,
But you finally gave in.
They moved you to Ames,
Sometimes you can just never win.

You stayed in Merely Greenly,
Where they made it feel like home.
They were always there to comfort you
When you cried, hurt, and moaned.

After a few weeks,
You weren't doing too good.
They moved you right along,
Back to your old neighborhood.

Right here in Ellsworth,
You were in the hospice room.
I didn't like where you were,
But at least I could come and see you.

You looked very peaceful
With a tear in your eye.
You took your last breath,
It was a sad way to say goodbye.
