LET ME NOT TO DEATH, BLEED

The window panes are brightly lit, The rays enter my room with grit. Their target, my eyes shut tight, I turn over; my response to the light. The room turns into an oyster; a gem, Sleep now hanging just by the hem. My sleep, it is gone, all too sudden, Welcoming the day, I start to redden. Finally I’m off the bed; on the floor, My arms too weak, too sore. I stretch my body, I strengthen up I look at my hair, Uhh! a messy lump… My French window… God, I’m in love! It’s my morning beauty… my dove. The coffee still hot, wisps in the air Reaching with grace I take it with care. Sipping the delight into my balcony, I see my street, somehow too melancholy. Birds chirping on the trees, the breeze Kissing my hair, I take it all in with ease. Leaning on the railing I cry, I plead Today, Lord, let me not to death, bleed I need to count my days, my moments, I tried but sorry, the doctor laments. The big C has got hold of the volcano… It will no longer gush, it’s too late, oh no. I can see the day, feel the morning Without a trace of regret, not weeping. I have but mornings such as these To wish my time would forever freeze.
