Can't Put the Pen Down…

How Many?


How many days have gone?
How many days are left?
Will I be marked on what I’ve accomplished?
Will I get an A for effort?
 
How many days are left?
How many days are gone?
Will all my poems and pictures still matter
Will anyone sing my songs?
 
How many hours to go?
How many hours have passed?
Will I wish I had spent them more wisely?
When vision dims a last?
 
How many hours have passed?
How many hours to go?
Will I care that I could have done more?
Will I even know?
 
How many minutes before?
How many minutes behind?
Drink my tea before it gets cold
Go to work and find
 
How many minutes behind
How many minutes before
I start again with a smile in your arms
Then go off to war.
