Last supper

I should like,
I think,
to share a meal with those
closest to my heart.

Wine and song and laughter.
A table brimming
with warm affection.
Old acquaintance,
not forgotten—
love spoken in
shared remembrance.

Let my self
be lost
in simple joy
and rich gratitude.
Watching in a quiet moment
as souls enjoyed
their company.

Would I tell them
that they would never see
my eyes again?
Or simply raise my glass
and smile?
