Maxed Out

 

My expiration date is nearing,

and I’ve used up my reserves.

 

My debt is overdue;

I’m trying to find a way

to compensate for all I owe.

 

Then I hear you say:

“My grace period is never-ending.

 

My death was sufficient

to pay for your debt.

 

Your credit history has been erased;

your limit on my forgiveness

has been increased to maximum capacity.

 

I transferred the charges

against you to my son

who had a perfect credit score.

 

Don’t worry about reimbursement;

All I ask is that you return

the love I’ve given you

and pass it on to others.”

My expiration date is nearing,
and I’ve used up my reserves.

My debt is overdue;
I’m trying to find a way
to compensate for all I owe.

Then I hear you say:
“My grace period is never-ending.

My death was sufficient
to pay for your obligations.

Your credit history has been erased;
your limit on my forgiveness
has been increased to maximum capacity.

I transferred the charges
against you to my son
who had a perfect credit score.

Don’t worry about reimbursement;

All I ask is that you return
the love I’ve given you
and pass it on to others.”
