My Time

Tomorrow I will wake when I wake

I have turned my alarm clock off

And cancelled all my appointments

My cell phone’s battery

Has been left to die

My landline is off the hook

I won’t be checking any e-mails

Or answering the door

Year after year I have given away

But tomorrow I am keeping

Among the Angels

Who among the angels heard

The stutter in the holy word

The pause when God took a breath

And then there was death
