Maybe I will be sitting
idly in the lazy boy
watching the “Wheel”
when the Red Foxe
big one” hits me
like a ton of bricks
or perhaps it will be
a long drawn out
cancerous affair
with love ones
hanging around
pretending I was
a great guy
and all that
just lying to
and others.

Maybe you are just being hard

Maybe you are just being hard on yourself...or... maybe you weren't a great guy but they just love you anyway.

My wife's father, an old Baptist preacher, said ay a funeral one time that when you are alive, they lie on you and when you are dead, they lie for you.
