Eleven Simple Words

At time of our passing
Not sure what to say
Advice to die well
Before we go on our way

Eleven simple words
“I forgive you”
“Please forgive me”
Next is, “Thank You!”

And the most important
Words for us to say
Is that, “I love you”
And bow our heads to pray

As we think about it
Why should we wait that long?
Words to share each day
A practice of lifelong
Based upon thoughts by Ira Bylock
