be i lucid in the last days of my solitude
will i pray to my comfort for tender mercies
then reminisce of many blessings bestowed
or with thoughts still proceeding from a sound mind
will i curse purpose and potential unfulfilled
without any solace from sorrow and regret
from the hopes and dreams of conception
to the contemplations at imminent death
will i recollect on a full life
lived with too little effect
