for whom will you wait!

this gives me food for thought...
who will you prefer...
as you are about to die....

your wife standing by to see you die...
or the nurse holding your hands and pray...
sir do stay ----
why die on my way....

let me go off today ...
my bf is waiting for me this day..
just for the next nurse
at least do stay

Style / type: 
Free verse
Review Request (Intensity): 
I want the raw truth, feel free to knock me on my back
Editing stage: 


As you love time it waits for no man just to quote an old saying.
The appointment was made the day you were born, it is your tasks to carry out that hold you here and if they don't get done may be you will have to return again and again, so liven up let go of that nurses hands and get those eyes seen to, and get on with other tasks.
You are here not only for you but for all you meet along the way they are part of your being as you theirs.
Watch for the things you may have to do or be for others to complete their tasks, then journey on, I shall be by the caves entrance, and as there is no time there, I really wont have to wait, you are already there as I am.
Now use your time here and not worry if the nurse is going to hold your hand, just worry about the vision she will be as you close your eyes.
Go well young Bard thinking of you,
Yours Ian.T

w/o me there will be no change, you will remain Loved/Lovedly regardless of who joins these pages.
We both have many pieces of writing to sort out as I said I am just copying to comp from a note book that I wrote in during the 1950's, it was a far different world back then and my writing reflects the thoughts of a teenager having just joined the Royal Air Force here (Shouldn't have done that really)
But in those days I lived in a village Education was sparse Jobs held no future in a village though the life there was idyllic.
At 15 I went into a man structure that needed a lot of guts or skill lol.
Some of the things that went on in my young head were quite different than today but was the base of reasoning.
Go well young Bard, I may post the writings as a Blog as I copy them I will see,
Yours as always Ian.T
PS:- don't forget mine then we will have at least one comment each LOL..
