Not afraid of death
It’s dying I fear
So I take each breath
Happy to be here


In touch with how I feel
And unafraid to share
Understanding it is real
And mine alone to bear


Feeling happy and sad
At the same time
Doesn’t make me mad
For these moments are sublime


My comfort zone
Has always been narrow
But it will need to expand
To accommodate tomorrow


So much to do
So much to say
Ideas to brew
For another day
