My blog covers life, love and loss; travel, coffee and chocolate; with some heartfelt pieces in the mix about my late dad, who had dementia.

Die laughing....

When I go, I would like to die laughing
(No, not right at this moment in time….)
But when my number’s up
Can it be down the pub,
Cracking jokes, as I croak,
With white wine?

Could I find a sure way to die laughing
With my feet up, in front of the box?
Could my heart go all racy
With some Gavin and Stacey
And then, when credits roll,
Could it stop?

And so, when it's my day to die laughing,
Could it be when I’ve reached 99….
…but still dancing with friends
Till the un-bitter end,
With bare feet, and red lippie, round mine?

Oh, and can all those I love, just die laughing?
No disease, no disaster, no shocks,
When they’re mellow, and old,
With a warm hand to hold
Knowing it’s time, without checking the clock?


Jane McIntyre.

  1. The perfect scenario I think. Minus the lippie.... actually on second thoughts, why the hell not. What a way to go.....
