Do Not Stand in his Light

to the bedside
of a dying person
of faith,
bring no skepticism
of your own, to dim
his last source of light
on earth.

Respect his lantern-holding
for the new path
in the transition.

If you doubt and
lack his vision
better to stay silent,
or failing that, away,
for what worse time could be presented
for challenging (against all odds)
the convictions
of a believer?
