The Constant Duel

The Highway Hospice team is deeply saddened by the sudden loss of a colleague, a friend and an inspiration. Always smiling, willing, helpful and kind; we will miss Sifiso’s energy terribly. Our thoughts and prayers are with his beautiful soul, his family and friends.

The Constant Duel

Oh death, His chosen time
gifting peace
imposing the cruel
man’s fight for life,
the constant duel

Anger, hurt and rage
a soul, a bird
flits from earth’s cage
important,
but not
mortal,
our time forgot

Oh life, Your chosen time
deliver me peace
how much is my fuel?
meaningful life,
my constant duel

Gently turn life’s page
time’s grains of sand,
each delivering age
lived,
fear devoid
mortal,
my time enjoyed

Oh death your chosen time
it is Him, our fate to assign

Poem by John’o inspired by the words so often said at The Highway Hospice… “Thanks Sifiso.”
