It is difficult to find the right words As I consider my legacy I might not have changed the world Yet I know it will never be the same
I have waited for evidence To confirm what I already knew End stage interstitial lung disease It sounds frightening and foreboding
The end is the end always the same I have absolutely no fear of death It's leaving the party of life early And how much torture in the dying
I have chosen to refuse resuscitation I want to go smiling and laughing Into that final good night I am now in home hospice care
My end will come on my own terms No blaze of glory for which I had hoped Just thank you, I love you will be enough I will not die connected to "THE MACHINE"
Commaful is part of my legacy I have enjoyed the genius and talent Found on its pages You have lifted me and buoyed me
My life has been rich and full I will continue as Grand Dad now and forever Promise me that you will never ever give up
