As the sun rises,
It brings along,
A new day,
Fresh and bright.
The birds chirp, the trees sway,
In the morning breeze.
The milkman rides along,
On his rusted cycle,
That he has been riding on for decades now.
On that rickety path,
Whistling that same tune.
It rings in my mind,
Every morning.
I want to whistle along and I try,
But nothing but air whooshes out.
I try hard but the naked gums,
Don't have the strength.

The sun is now overhead,
The children are back from school.
They thrust their bags down,
Thud they go…
“Come play with us…..Grandpa,
Come play with us.”
I rise from my chair,
But tremble and waver,
And fall back.
Oh! These legs now don't have the strength.
Taste this!' screams the children's mother.
“It's nice and hot.”
I pick up a piece to eat,
And oops it drops.
Oh! These hands now they don't have the strength.
I'm nothing but a pile of bones, 
That sits all day long.

A good for nothing…. Can't even whistle a song,
Can't even play with my grandchildren.
Nor can I eat.
What am I living for?
I need some peace.
I close my eyes……
And can see…..
A new world beckons to me.
It calls out for me.
It is my destination,
I belong there.
Where people are finally free.
