The Death Wish - Poem by AHO Speaks
Never to see the sun rise or see it set
To touch and feel someone we love is the best.
Never to hear laughter or the chatter of a child
To end my life; is it that bad or only mild?
Never to taste nor drink of the fruits of life
To miss my children and also my wife.
Never to feel rain, snow or the warmth of the sun
To miss the good things in life that are so much fun.
Never to have a thought, an idea or things of the mind
To miss companionship and friends that were ever so kind.
Never to walk or run along the sand or under the trees
To miss the birds, the flowers and also the bees.
Never to see the different colours of earth and sky
To miss others whom I love including I.
Never to touch or see the animal whom I do love
To miss the domestic and wild and also the dove.
Never to hope and dreamof a perfect life song
To miss those to whom I will always belong.
Is my life so futile and filled with pain
That I would deny myself one more day to live again?
Wait one more tomorrow before deciding on death
Do not deny yourself of lifes precious breath.
What appears to be impossible today or tonight
Ask and you shall receive tomorrow; another sight.
No said it would be easy and without pain
Don't throw away the gift for it may not be given again.
