Let me sing Amazing Grace as it’s never been sung before. Let me rest upon the top of the mountain and touch the sun. Let me dance as if there’s no tomorrow until the bell tolls.
Let me feel the delicious fur of my nonjudgmental pup one last time. Let me eat as many perfect peaches as I can, hand to mouth and repeat. Let me hear Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto in E until it is in my heart forever.
Let me learn to express my love without even a twinge of self-recrimination. Let me breath from deep in my soul the pure and newborn air of freedom. Let me….let me… one last hour, one last minute, one last second.
