The poem is below.


Sometimes I scroll on the obituaries,
and see people who had dreams, life,
and something to live for;
I see their eyes looking back at me,
with “you have something to live for”,
glowing in their eyes…..

    Teddy, I love it. Never thought of this, never heard anything like it before. Yet I look at obituaries too. I anteed up a 7 here. : ) Although I felt compelled to look up the spelling of the past tense of "ante," and one or two 'e's are both correct. I went with two - felt it looks a little better. But what do I know? They don't talk to me. ; )
