There was once a young man called Jim.

-

He constantly dreamed of a life,

in which he could win.

-

He worked and toiled for many years,

accepted his occupation with no regrets or fears.

-

Then one day as he slowly grew old,

he looked at his life, and low and behold.

There was so more than he'd simply been told.

-

He could now do so much more with which to win.

To fulfil dreams, hidden within.

-

He opened his heart and joined many charities, and other worldly institutions,

he started personal journeys,

with many thankful contributions.

-

He then bought two trophies,

he simply treasured.

-

Two made of silver, of beautiful singers,

who mused and sang of life unmeasured.

-

Now as time passes, he's aged and he's old,

but finally fulfilled, he faces no sadness untold.

-

All he once dreamt of came to life,

replacing fears,

the troubles and strife.

-

Just before he died, his carer’s softy spoke,

as their eyes sputtered and their waters broke.

-

"Why does good old Jim cry before those trophies made of silver,

his face looks so happy.

Oh it’s so familiar!”

-

What Jim wanted to say, but thought as he suddenly cried.

As his soul wavered between hidden spaces, just before he died.

-

"Those tears are of a happiness beyond the simple life we are given.

There is always more to us, if we really embrace truly living.

-

I tried and will die a King.

That's how to play at this life,

and eventually win.

-

Help those in need,

It's why you were born.

To always let your heart lead.

-

I wish you could hear these thoughts of gold.

Don't be one of life's many lost souls,

simply bought and cheaply sold.

-

Be one of those souls who always fight and tried to win.

-

We all engage in levels of sin throughout our lives,

but it's always been what's within our spiritual archives.

-

Don't cheat and risk going down, but try valiantly, and try to always go up!

-

That's my tale from your all old friend Jim.

For one day, tears you will all cry.

Make them tears of happiness before the day you die."

-

The carers looked on, hypnotised by silver trophies as the figurines started to sing and play,

just as Old Jim suddenly passed away,

and a bright light suddenly filled the room,

and there was a feeling of happiness,

replacing the gloom.

-

Young Jim had left,

to go on and bloom.

Ready to enter,

into heavens showroom.
