Now that I’m nearing my end,
have I gained the prizes I sought?
Where are the glories that I should attend,
do they equal the value I thought?
Will I on the road of life,
look back with wistful eyes,
and see these, not days of strife,
but the happiest of my life.
Such questions do enter my mind,
and cause me to seek some clue.
To what if life I may find,
and what thing from me are due.
But I’m sure my prize has value,
and that all the glories are here.
my future is fine and true,
and life holds nothing too fear.
So to myself the best.
my relatives and friends most dear,
may they always feel I have passed the tests,
of life, and held my treasures near.
