BANG goes the gun
and BOOM goes his heart on the last lovely beat.
That last lovely beat that some of us wish every day would come.
But not him,
this lovely man with this last lovely heart beat
wanted a long life,
one with laughter, sadness, sorrow and
but his long life was cut too short
like a freshly sharpened blade
that slices and dices everything
and anything in sight until..
One that would make others ask themselves why.
Why this way,
but the truth is..
Every second could be your last.
Like this lovely mans last lovely heart beat
that he took in so fully on that fall evening,
and all he did was
Sit and breathe that wonderful fall air
that gave him chills ever so lightly,
That lovely man with that last lovely heart beat,
has finally taken it.
Has finally gone up with his father before him,
and friends to follow.
But don’t cry kids,
because this lovely man
with his lovely heart beat
will always be with us.
He could be here right now.
Watching and listening.
Listening to your lovely heart beat that will someday come to your last.
So make every second count
and every thought matter,
Because one day
you could be this lovely man
with this last lovely heart beat
