How long should I stay, it’s a question of time
As long as you need I suppose, if you must.
Do we really have a say, I say no to the climb
From birth to our death, in the Divine we must trust.
One minute or years, it’s out of our control
How long we will be on this earth, we don’t know.
Fear of our passing, certainly taking its toll
For when heaven comes calling, we must go.
Try as we might, we can’t stave our own ends
Rearing it’s head, unexpected most times.
This circle of life, no mere mortal can bend
As we wait for the hour, Reaper’s bell to chime.
Be thankful for what time we have in this life, fleeting it is to be certain,
Loving your children, mother, father, husband, wife, before you draw your last curtain.
