Inspiring Poem by my Son

"Death, Don't Take Me Yet"

I humbly ask you death

please don't take me yet

I don't want to go

There's so many wild oats still left to sow

too many things I still don't know

I haven't seen the sun set enough

It's a little different every time

Too many things still go unseen

I don't want to leave

until I understand everything

I'm too far away

from satisfying my starving curiosity

Not enough makes sense

and there's too much left to experience

I humbly ask you

please leave me be

I know one day you'll have to come for my soul

Just let me stay till I'm good and old

Then I'll come willingly,

hungry to see what you have to show me.

M. Scott Olsen
