Original Poems

Valediction

Beach Couples Silhouettes

If I could stop what’s happening to me
If I could make it go away
I would
I’d stay here forever with you

But our forever’s coming to a close
And I won’t be here to see
Our children and grandchildren anymore

I don’t know why it’s my time now
But it is

And when I am gone
Know always that I was and am grateful

And that no man ever felt more fortunate
With the time he was given
Than me
