I Hope For To Live - Poem by Francis Duggan

I hope for to live for as long as I can
And die without pain in my sleep as a very old man
And though respect for the religious beliefs of others I show
Of a life after death I cannot say I do know
Though each to their own beliefs to all does apply
I cannot say I believe in a World ruled by a God in the sky
Though billions of people of different religions to their God do pray
Suppose each to their own as some do like to say
The Goddess I know of I see every day
Her perfume I scent in newly mown Summer hay
And the pleasant aroma of her blossoming trees
That wafts in the air of the freshening breeze
The songs of her birds so appealing to me
The only God that I know of is a she.
