I was thinking of Sleeping in Light and I thought of an old Neil diamond song called "Done Too Soon" and it fit.

Done Too Soon

*
And each one there
Has one thing shared:
They have sweated beneath the same sun,
Looked up in wonder at the same moon,
And wept when it was all done
For being? Done too soon,
For being? Done too soon.
For being? Done.

~~ Neil Diamond

John Sheridan knew his time was up.

He found that knowing that it would come did not make it any easier. He had tried to finish it all, to make sure everything was done and plans were made but –

He found out that the twenty years were not enough. A lifetime or even five lifetimes would not be enough to do all he needed, wanted to do. Not enough to love Delenn, David as much as he wanted to.

He’d traded all those tomorrows a long time ago, knowing that this day would eventually come.

It was done too soon.
