untitled as of now

I had a dream I was in a tower
And a plane flew by the window
So I recited the psalms of my last words
And watch them tumble over the crescendos
I’ve always been afraid to fly even though
I overcame my fear of heights
I still wake up after every night
Wishing I wasn’t afraid to fly
So I had a dream I was in a tower
And a plane flew by the window
I began to recite my last words
When I noticed a child’s mother
Reading a bible verse
I never had the courage to pick up religion
And never understood how people could
Get by just believing
But there her son was right beside her kneeling with his hands pressed together
Reciting his last words through prayer
I had a dream I was in a tower
And a plane flew by the window
So I began to recite my final words
When I saw this girl begin to deliver hers
She looked into her husband’s eyes
She said this is it, this is goodbye
He said, but we had a wonderful life
And the best part is I shared it with
A remarkable wife
Not one tear dropped
And not one smile broke
They held each other and didn’t let go
Now I’m not sure if they ever had a dream
Where they were in a tower
As a plane flew by the window
And pictured that moment when they began to recite their last words but noticed a grown man cry as he told his daughter he wasn’t coming home tonight
You see I had this dream that I was in a tower when a plane flew by the window
So I started to recite my final words
When I realized what final words are worth
And ever since that dream I will never
Take goodbyes for granted
Because some people didn’t have the time
To be thankful for all they had been handed
