we knew not of our arrival
how can we know our departure
I have completed all my assignments
they say can't apply euthanasia
I have no more responsibility towards any one
no favors to return
but shall do nothing wrong
till my natural turn

who on this earth can ever know
when the final whistle shall blow
when you are gone
none will know
the candle flame on the stand
will continue to flicker and glow,
till someone comes
off it does one blow

till then let's await our turn
there is plenty of place in heaven
there should be no hurry to go
but then who knows tomorrow
Au revoir till the sunrises again…

Good to know that you have finished all your tasks here.
I wonder who told you this????
I have it on tape somewhere but you may have a different messenger..
This was a good write from you, spelling out that waiting for God thing that older people seem to feel, it is a pity that a lot of people that are old have nothing better to do than sit around waiting, only the waiting rooms vary.
I would hate to be in some of them,
go well young Bard, I was only waiting to go to bed though not to bother the maker lol, Yours Ian.T

There are a million reasons to believe in yourself,
So find more reasons to believe in others..

I from day one
but waiting is no fun
so work
I don't shun
ere the sojourns end
has begun
