Written by DAVID ROSS STADLER
(LFP Resident, UW Professor, 1925-2007)

A night will come
when your sound sleep
Is broken by my grating cough
or unchecked shiver
or helpless loss of breath.

Letís have no frantic call
to nine-one-one,
No Medic One
Roaring up our quiet street
with siren wailing its lament
for mortal man.

But keep me warm
and hold my hand
and sing a sweet old song;
and together weíll await first light.

And if Iím there
when dawn has come,
weíll plan the day together.

But if Iím not,
go to the Mac
and read the notes Iíve left
to help you plan
the years that lie ahead.
