Last Letter

I wish
wish that I was stronger
was stronger to hold on
hold on to love, to life

I’m waiting
waiting to close my eyes
close my eyes and never wake
to never wake again

I’m tired
tired of fighting the dark
fighting for the Light
the Light to keep me from harm

I’m ready
ready to lay down my head
lay down and sleep
and sleep
and sleep

I’m sorry
sorry I wasn’t enough
wasn’t able to finish well
to finish all I had started
all the promises I couldn’t keep

I’m done
done and finished here
finished with all my letters
all my affairs set in order

I’m leaving
leaving my pain behind me
pain has been my teacher
my teacher was too tough

I’m sorry
I’m leaving
I’m done but
I’m ready
I’m waiting
I’m tired
I wish ….
