While I Wait

Copyright 8-9-2017

Steve Lake



As I lay in my final six feet

My lips again never to speak

My mind still knows

I must release my soul


My body was just a vessel of this time

To protect and to nurture my soul

Upon my death to fade away into dust

God has set it forth in truth

So it will happen it must


I now await my departure

Quietly in my solitude

It will happen if I wait patiently

It's been ordained by fate my only reality


Since I have time to reflect

On the good, the bad and all the things I did neglect

It was a life worth living

Even though I had a few misgivings


I begin to tap my toe

Impatiently I am ready to go

In my mind I hum my favorite song

What's my hurry?

I have eternity long


It's funny when you are all alone

How the mind will drift along

Maybe it's dying

Maybe it's converting

But what a ride!


I now tap my box being bored

Waiting to hear an echo from next door

Apparently they have left this place

Evolving to the next world to explore and to free up space




Not sure how long I must wait

Hopefully I go before becoming bait

I guess it would be my last contribution

Feeding the pest I would normally kill

In a sense making restitution


Finally my time has arrived

To leave this world into better I vie

As I soar past space

I bid farewell to the human race

Never again to see my face
