Title: Before My Candle Goes Out

Before my candle goes out

I want no weeping or wailing.
Nor prayers which are delaying the
Glorious exit that is waiting.

My eyes have seen a vision.
My time is at itís conclusion.
For eternity was seen beyond.
In front of me a timeless song.

I want but the touch of a hand.
The warmth of a friend,
Who understands.


Before my candle goes out

The cards and flowers
I no longer need.
Iím ready to take this flight.
Iím ready to be freed.

It matters not my age.
Iím in the last chapter.
Turning my last page.


Donít stand there in a daze.
Usher me in with His praise.
Let Him take pleasure in my death,
While thereís still little of me left.

He is blowing my candle out.
(end of poem)

A very interesting poem....

I can say that I agree with your statement of not wanting your last days and hours full of prayers that fill the hours until the inevitable...

I honestly just want to have a bit of happiness in my last hours.
