Die in my sleep–I would never!

Die in my sleep—I would never!
I want to be there, face it square on

Die in a bed, family around—no!
I want my privacy, I want to be standing up to it

Die as my family says—no way!
They have no vote in the matter

But I ask you sir: Is this how you want your family
to spend your last days and hours
in consternation
forever to rehearse the pain
they were made to suffer?
