No
 

NO

 

 

No marker on my grave

Not a soul standing over me

No one from the world I tried to save

No one here to see

No flowers left to commemorate

No tears, no sad goodbyes

No one remembers how I met my fate

No “he was a good man” lies

No one left here to carry my name

No one to carry on

But you go ahead forget me, it’s all the same

I’ll be gone to dust before too long

Now real darkness, silence, I’m all alone

And no escaping from this grave

The skin erodes, leaves nothing but bone

And all the memories of me will fade

This is what I deserved, what I asked for

In all that I said and did

I gave too little, I wouldn’t give more

When it was time to help I ran and hid

So don’t cry any tears for me

Don’t waste them on my name

And when they ask what became of me

Change the subject and put on the game

Before too long my dust will be gone

And no one will remember what I done

The emptiness the tears, the sad and tearful song

And no time to stop and have any fun

 

 

 

goodbye

I know it was sad, but as you know, our thoughts come to us and we write them down and then read what we wrote afterwards, when the insanity stops. I was thinking that very same thing the other day Debby, cause my books are moving now and I am now playing the drums in two different and very good bands, and though I prayed for that 20 years ago, He gave it to me in His time and that made me smile to realize that. Thanks for your thoughts and comments though, for taking the time to read my work.

It's not to late to leave your mark on the world. It's not over until it's over!

It has a really good flow, but how sad.
