As the time draws near I take my final bow.
This is how it feels. It’s all over now.
Looking back at this dimension called life.
Had my share of failures as well as success, I did alright.
When momma gave birth to me, for me, a new age had dawn.
Daddy was so proud when they told him, “A son is born.”
Seems like yesterday when I bought my first car.
Objects in mirror appear closer than they are.
I did whatever I want when I want and how I want.
Some came back my way. In my dreams they did haunt.
I regret a lot of things and some for what I said.
I would speak anything I was thinking in my head.
Things in my grasp I let slip through my hands.
What would’ve become of it? Would I’ve been a better man?
But now looking back I can say I’ve overcome.
I now wait for my reward for the race that I’ve won.
People come by applauding, thanking me for putting on a show.
“Thanks for the memories, Jarid, your life touched us you know.”
Realizing how weak I am, I nod my head someway somehow.
It’s a gesture to them all that I am giving my final bow.
My life has been a rough one. I am tired and ready to sleep.
I did all that I wanted to, so please, don’t you cry for me.
So here I am on my deathbed, but trust me I’ll be alright.
Take my hand my savior, pull it close to you and hold me tight.
With that said, I close my eyes and now I fall asleep.
No more pain or sorrow. It’s the ending of my grief.
