PLAYING TAPS

PLAYING TAPS

The time for stopping has come,

My wife’ll wonder what I’ve done…

I haven’t appeared,

It’s getting weird–

Three A.M. has almost wrung!

The computer’ll need recharging

While I put notes in gthe margin…

Of my life

Comforting wife

And hopefully sleep time enlarging.

Will sign off playing taps

Before donning a C-PAP mask…

We may meet again—

I hope as friends–

Gonna get me some sleep, should you ask.
