Shall it be an act of loving kindness,
A heartfelt moment of selfless giving?
My recognition that life’s truest gift,
Comes in unrequited giving?
Shall it be words of love and caring,
A soul will carry for their lifetime?
Providing one in need of comfort,
With words of solitude and peace?
Shall it be a final human touch,
Gentle and oh so full of love?
An embrace within a time of need,
Solace provided among life’s storm?
For what shall be my swan song?
My mortality now overwhelms,
It comes into an ever-sharp focus,
Looming much more closely than distant.
Shall I act, speak or touch,
Let my final act within mortal coil,
Be filled with love and peace,
For this is my one and final swan song.
