The Last Time


The last time
When will it be?
Will you see?
Walking barefoot in the sand
Or holding your child's hand
One more time?
Playing catch with dad
Bad throws never made him mad
One more time?
Giving advice to the grad
Who nods but is still sad
One more time?
Kissing with all your might
Dreams whispered through the night
One more time?
Pushing, striving
Never thinking of dying
Not knowing when
Never fearing the end
Recognizing only in hindsight
