"I've tried to do good... did what I could... that's all"

Transcendental Sonnet #1218:

That's All

 

I didn't think I was but some called me good

At least I always did whatever I could

Took care of sick people alone for ten years

Twelve if you count it another way and tears

Are about all I have left of my life now

 

(I could never live bereft of my wife now)

 

I could've done worse I wrote a lot of verse

Wrote a lot of music which nobody cares

About not even me but nothing compares

To the simple truth that somebody loved me

Something which I thought I'd never live to see

 

I've made a difference however small I know

Sometimes felt like I've failed and like letting go

I've tried to do good...  did what I could...  that's all
