The last farewell
He was so happy when we would meet
His smile, his eyes would light, his handshake,
But now he’s gaunt the cancers struck
His skeletal frame, he’s bald on top,
But there’s still a sparkle, he’s still so sweet
Despite the pain, the dwindling breath,
He likes to see his friends come around
But some have stopped, don’t make a sound
You cannot blame them it can’t be easy
To see him lie there, slow uneasy.
Though his wife is there a tower of strength
The tea, the chat,like an angel sent.
So take a moment of this precious time
To look beyond the timid frame
And see the man you knew so well
Take a moment some tales to tell
To watch him laugh or hear him cry
There’s still sometime to say goodbye.
