DEATH DAY -AS I TAKE MY LEAVE OF YOU
(to my soul mate on passing)
Our years as one ‘twix you and me
doth number now past sixty-three.
This life we’ve lived foul times and fair
yet never more than we could bear.
A family raised “fair thee well done!”
A pair of girls…a set of sons.
We’ve done our bit to others serve
through church and state with vim and verve.
Comes now the time when we must part
for new horizons each to start.
As you complete unfinished dreams
and I ascend celestial beams.
When once again we both shall meet
assembled round our Saviour’s feet.
And we shall talk of life-long past
So long as time unending lasts.
