MY SCHEDULE, a poem [W, 11-15-17]

What do you have scheduled?
She asked me

The scattering of my ashes
In that special place of dappled light

The occasion where my two
Remaining friends limp forward
To say nice things
To summarize in nine minutes
A life that took nine decades
To complete

My last breath
Closing my eyes
Hearing a baby giggle
Taking your hand
