Poem: Wills

by Joanne Faries


how to answer  lawyer questions on death

we are both alive,breathing,fearsome

yet a DNR lurks

future coma question or worse

who gets what crap

look around and our precious possessions

are nothing
Ray and I just updated our wills, and when you really look at the whole package - who's going to want our measly possessions?  The hard questions were the medical directives in regards to final comfort/pull the plug.  Very scary and yet necessary components of a will. I feel like a grownup.


  1. Yeah, I know what you mean. I took care of my living will and medical power of attorney papers about twenty years ago. After my mother died, I wanted to get that nasty stuff settled asap so my family wouldn't be stuck making those hard decisions on their own. My hubby? He's still thinking about doing it. I probably need to give him a little nudge.

    Take care. Happy weekend!
