Wrote a Tanka on the quote provided:

Was angry with you,
Hurt! Wanted to break away,
Then you made a call,
To tell me, you were dying…
Now, I am angry with me!

    It is strange that ill health and worse – death can make that big mountain of anger or displeasure with someone seem pimple-sized. Very powerful words, Smitha.

      Thanks Pranitha. I hate that the words are factually true. It’s indeed strange and sad how all that anger melts away in such a circumstance.

        Oh yes, it is a strange irony of life (or death)

      Thanks so much Robbie. The knowledge of death ends all the negative feelings, right…

    You’ve captured well the way that awareness of death changes things Smitha – the regret at things not done or that we would wish to do differently.

      Thank you so much Andrea. Sadly, when death comes knocking on the door, we understand the essence of life…
