i wrote this for my children after a seriouse cancer scare i had recently,thankfully it was not..BIG SIGH OF RELEIF..:O)

Last words befor my departure

Hold me why I weep
Sing me a melody so I may sleep
Kiss me on my cheeks
So I may smile in the coming weeks.

There is a chance I may not awake
A torment for me to keep
Begin your lives in full
Do try not to forget me.

The way you all smile
Makes me feel complete
I don't wish for this sleep
A promise I can't keep

I can say goodbye with no tear
Holding you all my dears
When I tell you all
Please don't fall down and cry.

So glad you heaved your sigh of relief, touching piece, enjoyed the opening stanza.
