The life had been hard and the road long as
I lay down beneath a tree in the softness of the moss
To reflect upon the happenings that had brought me here
I'm not sure when sleep overtook me
But I dreamed of my loved ones and the happiness I had known
Aware of the wind softly moving my hair about my face
While I had not accomplished greatness, perhaps in my own way I had made a mark
Perhaps someone would remember me in sadness when I'm gone
There was no fear within me as I opened my eyes to the brilliant light
The Goodness of Him and I smiled my last earthly smile.
