When the event comes, my death
This old heart will beat no more
Hoping to die with my beliefs
Kindness and truth I fought for

Surely I'm to perish young
Vivid visions brought in dreams
So many things to still complete
Yet time is ever short it seems

Reality so hard to grasp
No tears shed from sorrows eyes
Respect for all those I love
When finality brings my demise

Don't know when reaper's coming
Never sure of a time or day
We all pay our dues in life
Scenes of the past rush my way

No longer do I feel transcending
Just shivering, such bitter cold
Last thing to go in this painful life
Loved ones grip on my weary soul

    Last poem of my mother's I ever got to hear. She knew she didn't have much time left when she wrote this. 5 short weeks later she lost consciousness and passed there after. Reading it now brings a lot of emotion forth.

      I've just popped onto the site out of nostalgia and Cindy was someone who truly helped me grow as a writer. She was a pure legend and I'm so sorry for your loss x
