The days are growing much shorter
I've reached the twilight years
So I hurry to do everything I can
Before my final curtain nears.

I've had a very blessed life
With much  love and laughter
With many tears thrown in
Even an occasional disaster.

But I want it all to continue
I want to do so much more
I want to create and enjoy
letting my spirit forever soar.

My eyesight is growing dimmer
But I see things so much clearer.
As visions pass through my mind
Family and friends become dearer.

I pass nothing monetary on to you
But I hope I will leave you a smile
And maybe a memory or two
When after I've been gone awhile.

So I won't leave you here alone
Without at least saying good bye
I wish we had more time together
But my time is now drawing nigh.

Made me cry.  Very well written of course but leaves me a bit worried.  Katy, your poems are usually personal, I hope this isn't an indication of anything wrong.  Crying or Very sad

I love your poetry!

Thanks for the concern RB... What actually made me think in these terms was a friend who died recently of cancer... She never told anyone not even her family...So we all were taken by surprise, when the Dr. said she was diagnosed 4 months ago and told the outcome... But she just kept it to herself... This is causing everyone friends and family alike to  wonder why she couldn't share it with us and leaving us feel a bit of quilt for not being there for her... And not able to say good bye...

But you were.  Just you'll being there was apparently what she wanted.  I had an email friend that did the same thing, not only to his email friends but family as well.  I found that out from his family.  He said he didn't want people to treat him differently and he knew they would if they knew he was dying.

He had a good point and it has really set me to thinking ... about a lot of things.  Your friend I'm sure felt the same way as this email friend of mine.  She lived her last days the way she wanted.  Let it go, Katy.  sunny
