The last moment



Last breath sighed today

Snatched by the call of an owl

The hot seal of your crest

Placed upon your still chest

Now waiting a forwarding address

And as the chill fills the air

We bow our heads in prayer

Filled with our own fear

Don’t send that letter back here


Which we’d rather dream away

Even though it might be our last day

We’d sooner send it the other way

Don’t come near, please do not stay!


Constricts your breathing at night

When torments ascend to great height

And loneliness of darkness needs light

To fill emptiness and clear blurry sight


Like these sent as reminders

Of letters we still need to write

And all the affairs we need to set right

Your joviality flashes before my eye

When I think of you and start to cry
