Last Poem(Candlelight)
If I am due to die today,
I don't want you to be afraid,
And thank you for this pair of years,
When so well you allayed my fears,
 
And when you think of me please know,
It won't be far that I will go,
I'll be just close enough to reach,
When you walk long across the beach,
 
Remember, please, the things I loved:
My little house, my gardening gloves,
My reminiscences with you,
The lifetime shared, that you best knew.
