What do you say to someone who may not have much time?
Do you chastise yourself for even thinking that you can predict someone’s time?
Do you ignore the elephant in the room and make trivial conversation?
Do you beat yourself up for even thinking of ways to help their children, as if they are already gone?
Do you put on a brave face and assure them that all will be okay?
Or do you turn away to distract yourself because it’s too much to bear?
Do you feel like you have failed them?
Or do you feel it’s not your burden to bear?
Do you tell them it’s efficient to know one’s time?
That it helps to be better prepared.
Or do you tell them death is inevitable and no one will ever be spared.
