MY LAST DAYS

MY LAST DAYS

In a nursing home today,

Will I leave or will I stay?

Life or death, how do I choose?

If it’s death what do I lose?

Living life what is the price?

Do I pay or roll the dice?

Why is my mind becoming clay?

Weren’t we just children at play?

Is there no one to love or care?

Am I destined to sit and stare?

Why did my home become so cold?

Maybe we both were growing old!

Family and friends, where did they go?

Strangers glance my spirit sinks low!

Day after day, night after night,

My strength is gone, I’ve lost the fight!

Memories are fading fast,

Please leave me one that will last.

I would like too walk in the park,

Once before my room becomes dark!

In a nursing home today,

Will I leave or will I stay?
