    There is a void, deep within me, one that I can't fill.

      But I might hear the right voice inside of me if I just stand still.

    My youth is gone, I'm aging fast, almost o'er the hill.

    Not quite ready to meet the Reaper, but still I must confess

      That I'm a loudly snoring sleeper, and my hair's a mess.

    feel older and with it distress.

    So come, last breath, and I will say yes.
    Close my last window and watch me undress.
    All veils are drawn back now, but I do digress.
    The final light calls me to my final rest.

    Acrid air comes as smoke and fills the room.
    I gasp as my wish makes death requisite.
    I feel uncomfortable as I am tugged from the womb.
    I can no longer hold the rope with enfeebled hands.

    Death is swift,
    Death is harsh
    Final
    It takes my breath
    Shuts out the light
    Too late I struggle
    Fight
    As surely I drift towards
    Life's end...

      No Applause
      No encore
      Life is what you make it
      Try not to mess up-
      If you do start again,
      And again,
      And again.
      Life gives second chances, right?

    and then.....

    suddenly I can see
    a misty cloud before me

    confused I try to flee
    feet that dont belong to me

    and then just as suddenly
    awake is the best way to be

    Just dream
    and a remembrance
    of struggling
    causes awareness.

    Death is yet a future
    which has no existence
    without life.

        Proven or not,
          I'm aware that I'm here!
        This moment in time
          Is what I hold dear!

    Time torments the questions within,

    Who am I, how did I begin,

    Was my creation the result of an act,

    Is my existence proven as fact

    Where in creation did breath begin me
    Breaking the silence, turning the tide?

      Once I entered into this existence I found nowhere to hide.

    ......then with my last wakin' breath
    peace washed oer me like the breakin' tide
    ...hello...goodbye....
