a) The last two lines of "Crossing the Bar" (agree, GUEST, Fyldeplayer)
b) From Eric Bogle's The Band Played Waltzing Matilda:
And when I woke up in my hospital bed
And saw what it had done, I wished I was dead
Never knew there were worse things than dying
c) From Billy Joel's And So It Goes:
And this is why my eyes are closed
It's just as well for all I've seen
And so it goes, and so it goes
And you're the only one who knows
d) And the absolute killer for me is the following from Henry Lawson's Scots Of The Riverina:
And the old man died at the table when the old wife's back was turned.
Face down on his bare arms folded he sank with his wild grey hair
Outspread on the open Bible and a name re-written there.
