The Last Sound

What will be the last sound whispered to your ear When it is you feel your soul parting from here Could be a lovers sigh while lying in their bed Or the coyotes call echoing instead A tear drop drifting down a cheek in sadness The sound that a bullet makes when it strikes your flesh The waves of the ocean pulling you under Startling honk of a horn as into traffic you blunder The final words of prayer with Last Rites given Hopefully not the words you will never be forgiven

It is very difficult to decide what will be the last sound when departing from this world
