SoCS April 11/15 – Jour


Badge by Doobster @Mindful Digressions

One day soon I will fly away

Into northern skies

To foreign lands and foreign people

I hope it’s you who waves me goodbye

I hope it’s you who waves me home.

One day soon I will sit with you

Tell you my travel tales

Over tea and sugar biscuits

I hope its you who laughs at my antics

My moments good and bad.

One day soon I will fall ill

I hope its you who sits beside me

Holding my hand, comforting me

As the light ebbs and the darkness encroaches

I’d like it to be you with me then.

One day soon I will be carried out

In procession to a well loved song

I hope its you who guides my way

Watches as they lower me down

I’d like it that you saw me safe.

One day soon you will be looking back

I hope there are quiet moments

When you smile at a past memory

A faded photo sitting above your fire

I’d like that you recall my face.

    A journey that we’re all bound to take one day. We should all be lucky enough to have someone to ease that day. 🙂

    A journey that is planned yet entirely in our hands how we chose to make it. Excellent thoughts as always, Michael.

  5. The journey would be comforting indeed knowing there was some remained in the mind. I once told my wife that hers was the last face I wanted to see. So far so good. Inspiring Michael.
