"I've had a hard life" He told me he would not mind dying. I looked at the schedule. Five minutes until the surgery. The doctor came in, small talk A few papers were signed I had to ask him "What do you have to look forward to?" He told me his life was a vase, missing the flowers He talked about an island and the peace he had there The surgery was ready to start "Why don't you move to the island?" I said.
