My Last Wish ~ Jadida Kalim

If I should die, think only this of me
No, know this of me!
I took you in
When your parents abandoned you
I absorbed everything the world said
About me doing this to you

I clothed you and fed you
With warmth, care and love
I taught you what's right
I taught you what's wrong
I showed  you the best parts of the world
And the worst parts of the world

I laughed when you laughed
And cried when you cried
I always thought of you
Before I thought of myself
Wishing only the finest for you
My last wish before I die is that

Nobody will live ...
In fact I wish, there will be no such thing
As the cold, white walls
Of the dark old-age home
Where I had to spend
My last few days.
