Donal Mahoney- A Poem

Find Him

Millie on crutches 
in the day room 
tells Fred on 
his walker
to find him. 
It's important
says Millie
even if you're old
and can't walk.
Hire someone 
to push your 
toward him.
If you can't 
get out of bed,
hire two people 
to wheel 
your gurney
toward him.
It's too late 
if you hire 
ten men to
carry your coffin 
toward him.
Now is the time,
and for many 
that's a problem.
They have 
too little time 
to find him.

Donal Mahoney lives in St. Louis, Missouri.
