Halo: A Poem
Halo: A Poem
Of what we wish upon the morrow,
that of which we wish to borrow.
But how do you purpose to take,
a day of life that was meant to end?
From this day there is nothing to borrow
and leaves you to wallow in sorrow.
As I sink into the approaching darkness,
I surrender my soul and seek forgiveness.
The lights dim and my vision fades,
to carry on and live still I am delayed.
My life flashes by and I see a likeness.
A likeness of her undeniable kindness.
I wish to stop the flash and give it pause.
a pause of reflection and no other cause.
Her smile warmed my very heart
but I was not able to do my part.
I did my best and broke no laws
I just had too many flaws.
Before the end and when I have to go,
this I want to make sure you know.
Her smile illuminated my life
The most precious gift was my wife.
In golden radiance her life did glow
and I was sheltered under her Halo.
Make no mistake I won't lie
Now as I prepare to let go and die
I feel the overburdening strife
as I look back on my life.
To be better I gave it a try
But now I look back and I cry.
