Last Goodbye

If death were to knock my door tomorrow

Would I leave a trail of dreadful sorrow

Filled with regret, confusion and pain

And pursuits which were extremely vain?

If I were to leave this mortal world

Would I leave affairs twisted and curled

Complicated, hard and mysterious

And yet so very serious?

If I were to say goodbye

To those who really cared

Would they realize it’s my time to fly

Or are they still not yet prepared?

Would they know that I’ve passed on

And that this world to me is gone

Or would they cry my departure

And their hearts for me rupture

Did I leave missions unresolved

For my heirs to go through?

Did I get many involved

In what I thought was true?

Do I have more work to finish?

Do I have fears left to vanquish?

Should I prepare them for this

Before death administers the final kiss?

The last goodbye I should now prepare

To those with whom life I did share

To ready them for my ultimate flight

Which is a true source of might

For in my absence they will grow

And more truths they will know

Though alone now at last

After a journey which is now a past
