As The Ink fades

 The diagnosis was bleak, the prognosis was cast
 My pen, like I, will soon rest in peace
 Sadly, this poem will be my last

 My hands tremble as these words I release
 A tear hits the page,  the  ink begins to fade
 My pen, like I will soon rest in peace

 It's so hard to say goodbye to all the friends I've made
 Indeed you've become like family
 A tear hit the page, the ink begins to fade

 Your poems did inspire me 
 I treasure the beauty of their sublime refrains
 Indeed you've become like family

 So farewell beloved poets, perhaps we'll meet again
 On the distant shores of eternity
 Where we'll treasure the beauty of sublime refrains

 I stare towards the heavens where my soul  will soon  be set free
 The diagnosis was bleak, the prognosis was cast
 Soon I'll be on the distant shores of eternity
 So sadly,  this poem will be my last.

    I love that you did yours in form! The terzanelle is a most fitting and beautiful form for a final poem such as this. WELL DONE.

    Personally I found it very emotional to write my 'final poem' we never know when it truly will be out last. Love the repeated lines here Joseph - good luck in the contest:-) hugs Jan xx
