Ready to Leave

 

Dig my grave,

Get my shroud,

I'm ready to leave.

I've said my prayers,

Written my will,

I'm ready to leave.

 

I've taken back

Every hurtful word,

I'm ready to leave.

I've given back

All the tears I've caused,
I'm ready to leave.

 

I've paid my debts

And made amends,

I'm ready to leave.

I've hugged my dad,

I've kissed my mum,

I'm ready to leave.

 

I've turned all frowns

Into a smile,

I'm ready to leave.

I've lived my life

And been the best.

I'm ready to leave.

 

Wait.

Have I done all that?

Please,

Stop digging my grave!

Put back my shroud!

I'm not ready to leave.
