Poem: Last Wishes

I hope you share with me why you like or don't like this poem.

Last Wishes

Before I leave this life
I don't want a sorry 
         left unsaid
From anyone I have wronged
        forgiveness I beg
Matters not to me
         your share of blame
Before my last breath
        to smile at all I want
Wrong or right
         friend or foe
Not a tear unshed
Nor a smile 
          stopped from laughter
Not a truth untold 
           or a lie to nest
For what is life
           but a mere waking 
Into the next beginning 
A moving from shadows 
             to light
Sky to Earth
              hope to breath
There are no forevers
               in the flesh
Sorry travels endlessly
                wrong bones might forget
But spirit's sufferings
                  Never ends
