Soon everything will be alright

Every minute has gone away
Soon everything will part away
My children are with me
And soon I would be telling them, “Fare well thee”

The end it seems is drawing near
Is there anything that I fear?
Looking back into the past
My life has gone by very fast

When I still was an infant
I wanted to walk that very instant
When I was a young man, I wanted to
Sore high up in the sky

I got a job---
Worked hard to reach the top
I had a family, dear to me
But never near were we

Soon I realized

My lifeboat is going to capsize

And now I’m here dying
I hear everybody crying
Weak is getting my sight
… And soon everything will be 

Alright, Alright, Alright…

P.S: This is a poem I had written 9 years ago. This was the last piece of writing that received my Dad's appreciation. He passed away after a couple of months.
