No Way Out

No Way Out By Rick Rucker As recently as a year ago, I knew not, which way to go, From financial ruin, to likely cancer, I could not seem to forge an answer, I went to work, all depressed, My problems, largely unaddressed, My problems seemed to overwhelm, I could not seem to grasp the helm, Then, out of the Blue, I decided what I would do, That rather than “going out,” sad, and lonely, I no longer wanted to be “the only,” Rather than being alone, at the end, I would rather share the time left, with a friend, I thought that my search would be a Quest, But, I found it one of the best, Times in my Life, A Mission, with potential, rife, From that time on, The funk, that I had been in, had gone! Like snagging Victory, from Defeat, I got a bonus, an Angel, sweet, While it may seem to be remote, Those Dragons from my Mind, she smote, The end of my Life, once forecast, Was incorrect, it would last, Far longer than my doctor thought it would, I decided it was due to my Angel, good, I knew that I could not let her slip away, I did not want to go alone, into the Fray, As she had already changed my Fate, I beseeched her to become my Mate, She finally acquiesced, Rather than see me grovel, she thought it best, In the course of our Romance, I found that she is a genius at finance, I thought that money would be a concern of my heirs, With a longer lifespan, it again was one of my cares, I am but a silly Man, So, she put me on a savings plan, One that will do what is all the Rage, To have money, ‘til The End, at any age! So, if you want my prescription for a Life, so fine, Find an Angel, but you cannot have mine! Her time is already spoken for, For the next hundred years, or more!
