Too early for goodbye
You may have lived a life worthwhile,
You may feel you have walked many a mile,
To exit you may have come to reconcile,
How do you expect one to agree and smile?
So many words are still in your vast treasure,
the many stories you have yet to share,
which magically calm, soothe and cheer,
about leaving now, don’t you dare!
You still owe a lot to the world of art,
Your fans love you with all their heart,
For them, your poems are the day’s best part,
So this is not at all the time to depart.
You advise that life must go on and on,
Regardless of who has come or gone,
But this does not apply to the poet icon,
Without you, the day will not dawn.
Oh those thoughts! Just stop and block.
Don’t even think of giving others a shock
For fans who worship the path you walk,
always remember, you are a solid rock!
