“The Inevitability of Death”

Fleeting, life is.
Ephemeral, in fact.
Words so cunning.
But soul? Intact.

Courage? Indeed.
Stay! Please.
The song ain’t done, and
It’s my soul you squeeze.

Much have you taught,
More than you know.
Love is eternal
Among the ya’s and whoa’s.

As dark rings the door
With body to take,
You are the ocean, and
I am just a lake.
