The white angel comes and goes, leaves those around me in tears
They tell me with fake hope that all isn’t as bad as it appears
But feeling the grief in their hearts, I know that the end does lurk near
For this knowledge, neither do I break, nor do I shiver in fear
A stray thought crosses my mind and I find myself wondering,
If all that I have done in my life is worth remembering.
I wonder if the Universe will know that my time is done
Or will I pass out like another blip against the sun
I fancy that nature will weep to grieve my departure
Or perhaps she will scorch all the earth in her anger
Huge waves on the seas she might unleash in her fury
Or she might not care and the day be lost in history
I wonder if the world will shed tears when I smother
Will it grieve me greatly or will it not bother?
Perhaps for ever, it’ll honor my reminiscence
Or may be it’ll just laugh and call it good riddance
As dusk morphs to night, my life flashes before my eyes
Did I do it right or have my steps been unwise?
Had I done things differently, would it be better
Or of all possible ends, is this the best one ever?
But all these questions don’t bother me so much
Soon I will be beyond care, worry and such
Only now does a single tear cross my eye
As I part my lips and say
