Her waiting would be rewarded at last,
The final day that would take her away.
The release from all she had left in life
For only pain was all she felt.
Tired of suffering, the last choice she’d make
After a long way of losing strength quickly
She took her life in own hands once more
And now longed to make it end for ever.
All where there, her friends and family
To pay their last honour and wish her good luck
On her walk out of life, into the light
‘Cause wherever she’d go, she would leave.
Still there was a stranger with her
None she knew, though on her request
He’d come to fulfil with a single syringe
Her desire to leave whatever she’d left
Now on her last powers, she whispered goodbye
Then closed her eyes, as the needle shot in
She let out a sigh , slowly fading away
But stayed part awake as a movie was played
Moments of life now passed her by
How she grew up, had laughed and cried
For hours it seemed to play these scenes
But then the time came that pain had begun
More clearly now, she saw her last days
How she had waited for this end to come
But as she realised she now slowly died,
She tried to envision those around her again.
To her horror she even succeeded and saw,
All of them crying while she wasn’t dead yet
For all she really wanted, had prayed for and desired
Had failed at last, as she woke up dying
