Written by a man with only a short time left.


I spent a little time yesterday
Thinking about myself and my life
And I came to realise that my time
Has almost come and gone
Don’t cry for me my dear
For I’m not quite finished here yet
I have enough time to tell you my will
These words you will never forget
I need more sleep than I used to
My joints don’t move like they did
My face is looking more than just tired
I’m a little older than I care to admit
Just writing these words is exhausting
My path a thousand times walked
I’ve seen enough to fill volumes of books
I’ve made more than a few people talk
You’ll never be without me
I’ll be in the very air you breathe
The smile on your children’s faces
The rustle of wind in the trees
