 Before I Go
There are some things before I go
Before my time with her I know
We'd like to do so I could take
Things yet to do in life forsake
Like skipping stones across a pond
My child like moment with her to bond
To walk amongst tall trees that bare
Initials carved on trunk still there
Leaving my name for one to find
How much in love when time was mine

I'd stroll the beach with hand held to
Feeling soft fingers ring placed unto
Feeling invincible for she was when
Better days, in life I'd spend

I'd cook for her, OK, boil water
Making Jello. father a daughter
Leaving my seed and see it grow
Before time comes for me to go

Walk in the rain and bathe myself
With love all hers, our time to melt
Into a pool where splashes shared
Were filled of love that truly cared

I'd play tag with her your it
But never run but wait and sit
For us to catch what I failed to
Love and much more of life once blue

I'd sit on edge of cliff on high
To share with her no more goodbyes
As stars witnessed my one last try
To kiss the girl who brought me sighs

and in the end though I fell short
Of many things we failed to court
It would not be the one we held
For a short time I'd kiss and tell

Skimming Stones
