lacking the spirit to fight on
loosing the zeal to carry on
i am between two worlds torn
grown of age, weary of life
here i lie about to die.
and if you my doctor will revive me to life
I’d with you be furious sir
for i am at the point of an edifying death
a life well spent tending the need of others
i was important while i lived but
but tiz important that i know the certainty of death
those who lived well, fear not to die
and if life was presented me without the option of a blessed death
i would have rejected it… i don’t buy the idea of living forever, neither can i accept it for free!
