From A Death Bed

Covered all over, just a plain white sheet
Hearing silent whispers, and a faint heartbeat
Nearer to the end, earlier than expected
Gazing at on looking faces, and the lives that were affected

Through the window, out on the street
Ha! Another road jam, and many hustling feet
Out there, no one's missing a feat
Yet over here, a future is bleak

The walls fall apart, now there's empty space
They rejoin, make up a new place
A beam of light, cuts through all the black
Playing images in the mind, memories and flashbacks

Smash the projector, never lived in ease
Depart with the soul peacefully, at least
Running low on air, make best use of it
Say the words, make them smile, just a bit

All is forgotten, all is forgiven
The harshness in the open, and all that was hidden
Throat is dry, getting still
Won't say "Don't forget", because they will

This is the coldest December yet
Black Clad approaching
Break into a sweat
A few last words
Wanted to slip away
Just wanted...
To say...
Loved You...
