Hold Back The Night - Poem by ivor or ivor.e hogg
Hold back the night. Let not the light
fade and disappear from view
I still have duties yet to do.
Hold back the night I’d fain put right
and leave with honour shining bright.
Mistakes I made as all men do.
before I bid this world adieu
and then accept the fall of night.
I’m truly not afraid to die.
Because I know I’ve done my best
and that is all a man can do.
I hope I’ll be remembered by,
when finally I’m laid to rest.
Those who I loved, who loved me too.
