One Last Breath

The shadow is here

Together we dance

Death’s lullaby

We are nearing

The final stance

Walking out on life

Land of the dead

Vaporized spirits

Just up ahead

Waiting for me

Refusing to let go

Pulling me in

Painfully slow

Clawing my way

Out of the grave

The ground is crumbling

Slipping away

I don’t want to go

I am too young

Life stands before me

Under Earth’s sun

If I must go

Give me a sign

Letting me know

My new design

This lifeform

Or something new

Will I have wings

And a new hairdo

Will I be human

Will I be safe

Will I be harmed

Will I go through the gate

Into a world

Between night and day

Where spirits roam freely

Where I will stay

I’ve known my destiny

Since I was a child

Never to see 50

And in just a little while

My name will be called

I am not sure why

I don’t want to go

I have no choice

The shadow follows

Closing in fast

Soon I will not

Avoid his grasp

The Shadow of Death

His hand I will hold

As he dances with me

And we enter the fold

One final breath

It is the last

I’ve had to go now

My future has past

I find myself "Dancing With Cancer", problem is...I can't dance. I stumble, bumble, and get pulled along. To keep my sanity, (humor me), I write short stories, a journal, musings and poetry....just about anything goes.
