Before I Finally Enter Darkness - Poem by BEAU GOLDEN

Before I finally enter darkness
I wish to be surrounded by friends
All waving farewell and broadly smiling
With Kisses and hugs eternally beguiling

I wish to be held by a litany of lovers
Remembering the times spent laughing under covers
Swearing our love lives on forever
Promising they will leave me never

Before I finally enter the darkness
I wish to smile at 10000 faces
Spend a spring day at the county races
Swim in a pond after an all day hike
Go out and lazily ride my bike

Defeat the evil rescue the meek
Kiss a maiden upon her cheek
Love and love and love some more
In bed all day till half past four

Before I finally enter darkness
I wish to spend hours bathed in warm bright light
Cajoling rebuking the cold eternal night
Raving and ravaging the last vestiges of spring
Thumbing my nose at the whole death swing
(flipping him off as we dance and sing)

Before I finally enter darkness
I wish to be surrounded by friends
All waving farewell and broadly smiling
Hugs and kisses so beguiling

Finally leaving
Without grieving

    That is what everyone want before the enter the darkness n go into the light.
    It is also what i want if it can be done when finally it time for me to face the darkness. :)
