this is your siren song ~ this is your excuse not to live ~ this is my exit

Broken

here the heartbroken ~ the forgotten, unsheltered ~ lay in graves of stone

Final resting place

closer, close by ~ the end approaches every day ~ our return to stone

Last breath

the dawning was dim ~ on that very fateful day ~ that life lost its breath

Along the way

on our way to death ~ we should play and laugh and sing ~ make each moment count

Brief acquaintance

too many riddles ~ in the dark blue stream of life ~ too few lucid days

Too little time

it is a rainbow ~ this our multi-coloured life ~ so quickly over
