PICKET FENCE

I have known the days of excess
And those times of ‘not enough’
I have seen the golden sunrise
And faced nights that were so rough

The fire inside grows weaker
And the light grows dimmer still
But that is not a bad thing
For of life I’ve had my fill

Now I see a picket fence that
Stretches straight across my way
It marks a destination
Called the ending of my day

So when I reach that final place
Remember this of me
I sang the song of those I knew
Who fought for liberty
