Poetry Breakfast #21 – The Life That I Have

The Coffee I Have
(may it never be read by Leo Marks)

The coffee I have
Is all that I have
And the coffee I have
Is yours

The eggs that I have
with the coffee I have
is yours and yours and yours.

Some toast I shall have
And fruit I shall have
Yet breakfast will be but a pause
For the home-cooked fare
At the table we share
Will be yours and yours and yours.

The Life That I Have
Leo Marks

The life that I have
Is all that I have
And the life that I have
Is yours

The love that I have
Of the life that I have
Is yours and yours and yours.

A sleep I shall have
A rest I shall have
Yet death will be but a pause
For the peace of my years
In the long green grass
Will be yours and yours and yours.
