Six More Miles
Six more miles to the graveyard.The cemetery is coming fast.We will all be there soon.They will leave me there alone.I've enjoyed this life and the journey.But, I can see it coming to an end.I can see the grave yard-It's just around the bend.This life will soon be over-Life on earth will be no more.The cemetery is coming fast.There we'll all end up at last.The road now is bending.The cemetery is already in sight.From this life we will soon take our flight.
Author's Notes:
I was listening to a song by the same name sung by Hank Williams Sr. That is what brought this poem to my mind. I know that I would never have thought of the poem without the song, but the composition is all mine.

I don't think I've heard that song before. Well penned. *S* Wind Whisperer

Well hopefully my car breaks down before I get there. I don't want it to come up to soon.(LOL) Great poem nonetheless.
