"Just Once More, Just for Me"

Look not at my age,

for I carry the banner of immortality -

the soul lives on indefinitely

and fortunate it is for me,

devoid of rights and wasted rage.


Let me borrow from my Mother,

who's life was sometimes tested

and whose body we have rested

in the place she had requested,

this woman like no other.


Here is what she might have said:

Life can be a book of song,

stand up straight to sing along,

and when your life is going wrong,

I'll pull you up ahead.


You cannot ever cease to pray.

Ask Our Lady's intercession.

Always make a good confession,

and you'll be in the great procession

on that Glory Day.
