Not long now

Head shaved to floods of tears Been told months Pray for years Don't know what's in store for me Cross my fingers and wait and see Had a visit to the surgery for a routine appointment Dr sat me down and sold me disappointment Those tests  you've had couldn't be worse Get yourself home son an book yourself a hearse Head shaved to Floods of tears, Been told months Pray for years, Don't know whats in store for me Cross my fingers and wait and see I worry's for my lovely spouse She'll see the death of her man of the house She'll move on with the hands of time It's such a pity those hands arnt mine. Head shaved to, floods of tears Been told months Pray for years Don't know what's In store for me Cross my fingers and wait and see How do you tell your kids the news you've bin given Can't tell them I'm dieing Cos  life is for livin They'll  have to learn to get on Cos it wont be long before I'm gone Head shaved to Floods of tears Been told months Pray for years. Don't know what's in store for me cross my fingers and wait and see Sat down and cryed like  hell, trying to organise my funeral I hope the wake wont look like the Mary Celeste Mabe they'll contact renter guest Head shaved to floods of tears Been told months Pray for years Don't know what's in store for me Cross my fingers and wait and see It's now approaching the dreaded day priest brought in to help me pray Waste of time I'm on my way

If this is real, I am praying now. I am praying miracles... God give you every peace, every comfort, to your family as well. Powerful, sad and moving write, well written too close to the heart... but painfully perfect in artistry. Ann
