With all the gifts I’ve got to give,
I’ll need a lot more time to live!
There’s girls to kiss
And work to miss
All far too much for me to sieve.
Where does time go? This isn’t right
I need at least another night,
To prove my worth
To all on Earth;
I could have been a shining light.
The sands still fall? This is no way
For me to spend my final day.
I’ve never seen …
And never been …
I’ll have to find a way to stay!
You see you’re wrong! You’re off your head
You meant some other man instead
I’m still alive
And sure to thrive
Bummer, it’s hard to write notes from beyond the grave!
This is your prompt:
“what do you mean, I only have four hours to live???”
