Life

(Written April 14, 2012, at 12:50 am.)

Life do unto me this final favour,
Grant me the strength to be a little braver,
To weather the rest of you with a semblance of grace,
To meet Death with a welcoming smile on my face.

Life to unto me this final favour,
Grant me the serenity to silently savour
The rest of you with grit and a grin,
To greet Death with surrender to sin.

Life do unto me this final good,
To have you finally understood,
To wrap you in ribbons and a red bow,
To gift you to Death without sorrow.
