I can hear the night wind knocking on my door.

Calling at me to finish up.

I did have a good run, and it’s time to go now.

I’m waiting for you, my son, to come back.

Wanna see you one last time before I go.

Travelling through a rich life, you are busy.

Just stop by one last time, and I will be ready to leave.

Happy to have cherished my life for so long.

There is nothing to regret any more.

I spend my days now treasuring the memories we made.

It makes my heart fill with joy that

A part of me will still be here,

Living and Loving, through you,

Long after I will be gone. 

Wanna see you one last time before I go.

Travelling through a rich life, you are busy.

Just stop by one last time, and I will be ready to leave.  

Inspiration: I came to know about a recent incident from someone.  A father was patiently waiting on his deathbed for his son to return from a vacation, met them in the next morning after they were back and then continued on his final journey the same night.
