The Last Time
by Will Griffin

There had to be a last time
I went out to play on my old swing set
In the backyard, at the bottom of a hill
There had to be a last time
I waved to my dad through the window
As he was going to work
There had to be a last time
I played Hide-and-Seek with my little sister,
Or a last time I climbed our Japanese maple tree,
Or rode down our driveway on my blue bike with training wheels
There had to be a last time
My mom bandaged my wounded knees
There had to be a last time
I saw my granddad before he saw Jesus
I have done so many things for the very last time
