The Wall

As we approach those final days
And restlessly await our fate unknown
We remember back to the many ways
That we lived with others and also all alone
Did we treat with them in a caring manner?
Or act as though they did not matter
Did we act with courage and live with honor?
Or demean their being and leave lives in tatters.
We know not what lies beyond death's door
Do we live on still in those we love so much?
Does the end fade to black or will there be more?
Do we only survive in those lives we have touched?
Weep not for me old friend
For these last few years were filled with the pain
Of illness and the sadness of a life condemned
To never share health with friends nor family again
I go to my rest with a heart filled to the brim
Of knowing a peace and a true love that are rare
Having shared my life's journey with my daughters and Kim
And also with Paul who is hard to compare
My eyes fill with tears when I think of leaving you all
So much will I miss those I truly care for
But my body is broken beyond any recall
And I look forward to seeing what lies over life's wall
There I will await those that I love
To share life anew on times nether shore
To be reunited again by my spirit above
Or to travel through space and remember no more.
