5 more days on this earth,
one more walk on the beach,
one last wish on a star,
no more lessons to teach.

4 more days on this earth,
time for one last chance,
one more run through the meadow,
one last rain dance.

3 more days on this earth,
one last law to break,
a final sunset to watch,
one last love to make.

2 more days on this earth,
gather the family and wait,
enjoy the laughter and love,
forget all the hate.

1 last day on this earth,
to look back and ask why?,
to smile and wave,
the final goodbye.

I wrote this poem for my friend who was dying of cancer, one night we were discussing everything she wanted to do before she died, and it evolved into "Counting Down"
