GO

Already?

Almost time!

I thought I had

So much time left

Well…

More than I’d need….

But suddenly

I could swear I only blinked twice,

And now it’s almost time to go.

  1. Congratulations on what you did **NOT** do! You did not give us just another maudlin poem with pretty, frilly words about the brevity of life. You chose well — plain words made beautiful by their plainness just as the most beautiful lives are those lived in simplicity. I applaud you for this truly inspiring work. (But if the word “like” went away in the fourth line, I would be “like” overjoyed! It simply adds nothing of value except to future forensic linguists…my opinion, of course!)

    • Oh, I certainly agree with your opinion on “Like”! I had been inspired to use it because I had just passed a girl who said that exact phrase….
      Perhaps I could keep the inspiration, but improve the quality of vocabulary! 😉
