The autumn night grow colder As I lay here in my bed And I'm becoming older Who knows when I'll be dead. My bones are continuing to ache My body is growing weak I don't know how much more I can take It's getting harder to speak. My memory comes and fades away The time, I feel, is coming near I don't think i have enough time to stay With the people i hold so dear. The medicine is kicking in, It's time to say goodbye. Like Daniel in the Lions den I am praying to god on high. Deliver me to the pearly gates It's time that I check in. I'm not a person who patiently waits Father, forgive me for my sins.
