For, Mr. Rosenburg

As I go over

When it really is time to go

Is there anybody who'll be there for me

Been so close

But always found a way

___Always got out of it

___Always brought me back again

Managed to come through

This time

Don't know what to do

Now they bring it nearer

Nearer to finality

It comes closer

__Comes closer

__To the end for me

____________Will anybody fold their hand around mine

____________Somebody tosmile warmly Whisper it's alright

____________Say gently: Here to help into the night

____________Is this my swansong

____________Is this my hope

They always

______say: Pictures worth a thousand words

_________Give me that one chance

_________With all that talk I'll write you a rainbow Even put in a pot of gold

_____________________Write a spectrum full of colors HazyAutumn hue

_____________________Like after the rain Some shadings that help life feel clean and new

_____________________All magical moments Etched dreams and thoughts of you

_____________________Write an emotion Tears with feelings reeling Break the heart of soul

________________________Is this my swansong

_____________________Time is gone Comes a time of night afraid to wake or sleep

________________________________Just try to get through

_____________________________________Perhaps this Is my swansong

I can write myself a mood Even write a little smile

I'll be gone awhile Within eternities last mile

Made a few friends

Sort of makes amends

So I suppose I'll just go No big show

Simply stand in the line But when the time does come

Is there anybody that cares Help this heart of mine

Unfold some truth of real feeling and then some

Or none

_______Will someone fold their hand round mine

_______Somebody to smile warmlyWhisper it's alright

_______Say gently: Here to help them into the night

_______Is this my swansong

_______Is this a hope

They always

______say: Pictures worth a thousand words

_________Give me that one last chance

_________With all talk: I'll write you a rainbow Even put in a pot of gold

______________________Writea spectrum full of colors Hazy Autumn hue

______________________Like after the rain Some shadings that help life feel clean and new

______________________All magical moments Etched dreams and thoughts of you

______________________Write an emotion Tears with feelings reeling Break the heart of soul

______________________Is this my swansong

______________________Time is gone Comes a time of night afraid to sing or talk

__________________________________Just try to get through

____________________________________All I've said

____________________________________Is all I've got

____________________________________My swansong
