Everybody dies, I have to, too, but

by Gale Acuff

I don’t know when and sometimes I wish I
did so that I could prepare for it but then
at least I know that I will even though
I don’t know the exact time, and come to
think about it maybe there’s no time at
all involved, at least not to me, when I
die that is though it might be to folks left
behind, they mark death down to the moment
but as for me Eternity begins
when time’s behind me, at least I think so,
I’m ten years old but I figured it out
when I fell asleep in Sunday School and
dreamt it up or maybe God gave it me.
In any case, eat your heart out, Joseph.
