The goodbye

Last Days

The last days are coming

Said with a sigh

Nothing will stop them

So why stop and cry

I’ll walk with you to the wishing well

Laughing every day we can

Not standing and waiting for the toll of the bell

Rather going down knowing I ran

Dance we will

Every night and into the day

Dealt a bitter pill

My last days will be at play

Few thing left to do

The list is quite small

We’ll do every one we can, I promise you

And get them all before I fall

Last days are coming

And I stay out of there grasp

Forever I’d stay roaming

When they come letting out a surprised gasp

Last days are coming

Or so the doc does say

Meds are numbing

So I continue to play

Told you all I should

The words never to come

How much I love you if I could

Sorrow is only for some

My last days are coming

Faster and faster each day

Systems stopped humming

And wished I had to stay

Things left unsaid

Sorry that I waited

Remember when I’m dead

By Sorrow, your life can’t be invaded

My last days are near

My life was good and long

The end is close I fear

The final bell has gong
