Palliation

Palliation
Awais Aftab

Unlike me
You were the one
Advocating natural ends
Always against
Euthanasia

Who would have thought
That when we'd come to it
The roles would reverse

Unlike you
Why is it so
That I can't bring myself
To end this Stage IV relationship
Already on palliation
Suffering and sedated

Perhaps
Some pains are sacred
And some diseases
Deserve an honorable death
