Benny Andersen - 1929-2018

Ode to death

When I just think about myself
I think: good enough
you’ve made some wrong moves
but also left your mark
have quite a bit to regret
and a bit to be proud of

sum total:
it could have gone much worse
but actually went much better
you were given plenty
you’ve passed the test
have yet to pass on
a good day to die
though Monday would suit better.
