My Choice...

poem by: Frank Byrne
Written on Apr 11, 2017

"While we are here, on this beautiful blue earth,
please value your life, for all that it's worth.
Don't ever take for granted, any second of each day,
just live your life happily, in your own unique way.
But be aware that an illness, can strike anytime out of the blue,
that's the cruel reality of life, for us all, that fact is true.
Sadly, when hope has all gone, it's only you that will know,
so the choice should be yours, when it's your time to go.
If the quality of life, is no longer there, if excruciating pain is too much to bear,
I will say it again, and will always believe so,
that the choice should be mine, when it's my time to go."
