How many more times will I be surprised

How many more times will I be surprised
How many more times will I hear delighted cries
How much longer will I witness a majestic sunrise
How many more times before I reach my Demise

How many more times will I fly
How many more times will I gaze at the sky
How many more times will I break down and cry
How many more times before I Die

How many more letters will I send
How many more forks and spoons on bike wheels will I bend
How many more brave faces will I pretend
How many more before I meet my End

How many more times will I fail to catch a fish
How many more times will I refuse spinach
How many more paintings and poems will I Finish
How many more times before I Diminish

How many more times will I sink into my bed
How much more will I struggle to get ahead
How many more times will I, with friends, break bread
How many more times before I am Dead

How many more times with I have family to stay
How many more times will someone shout to me “hey”
How many more times will my temper fray
How many more times before I pass Away

Many more times I hope to see
All the things surrounding me
To embrace loved ones with glee
To enjoy every moment before I am finally Free
