The Lion at Sunset

He lies in his bed at the Intensive Care Unit of the top hospital in the city.  His final hours approach with mathematical precision, in much the same exact and ordered way he had lived all his life.  He was a strong warrior who had fought all the odds and invariably emerged the victor all throughout his long life.  Always the winner, he now faced the ultimate, unconquerable end…     

The Lion at Sunset.

Thank you Tito *******, for the inspiration.

Note:  The Lion finally passed away 09 November 2008, Sunday, and was laid to rest 13 November 2008, Thursday.

    Be strong for the LION, for his whole life has given you purpose and at this stage of entering the portal of eternity, you have given your Tito honor, you have accepted and embraced the true meaning of life.

    His legacy will live through you. This blog. Your thoughts and stories.

    All our elders who have gone ahead of us do that, they showed us how to live with passion, to love without condition and how to die with amazing grace.
