    Almost time to let go
    This body tired, this spirit filled with fight
    So much left to do
    I almost had it beat.

    But my tears will flow
    On the day my spirit slips away
    So much left to do
    I almost had it beat.

    I see the fear in their eyes
    Itís hard to let go and yet the time comes near
    So much left to do
    I almost had it beat.

    This disease robs me of joyous days
    And loving nights with the ones I love
    So much left to do
    I almost had it beat

    The questions of why me race in my head,
    What about my family, can they cope without me?
    So much left to do.
    I almost had it beat.

    So I live my life a day at a time,
    Taking the good with the bad, loving my family like I never had.
    With so much left to do.
    I know I almost had it beat.

      I do agree with the two persons before me. It is indeed beautiful. Though I usually prefer descriptive and visual poems; this one, for such an emotional piece, really got to me. When you repeatedly say, "So much left to do I almost had it beat, I remembered the time when I had faced the same crisis like you in the past. Painful, yes it is. But we just have to keep moving along.

    Nice work you have here. :)

      I have to agree that this is beautiful. I know what it is like to be losing a loved one, i have dealt with a similar situation. In situations like these, it is hard to give any criticisms of the work, as it comes from the heart.

    I like the repetition of I almost had it beat.
    It really adds a sense of being painfully aware of how short his time is.

    Beautiful work. I hope to see more of it soon.

      Oh Joy, what a beautiful and moving piece of work this is. It is perfect in every way, and what a testiment to your uncle.

    Be very proud of what you have written here.
