When I Die...




















When I die I will not say
'do not disturb my circles'
I could say 'don't let me go'
or even 'drop that sword (or gun)'
I could whisper on my dying breath
'at least I have lived this life'
or 'I see the light, it's getting closer'
I could leave everyone disappointed
having died while asleep
or have no words and just weep
but it's more likely I'll try to be profound...
then either I will run out of time...
or lose my voice...
or say something funny instead
how ashamed that would make them feel,
laughing around my death bed.

 Theme Thursday, where interpretations run amok.  This was inspired by the prompt "reason." Take it how you will.
