Tribute…


 

In tribute to the heart that has finally died

And pumped its final gush of blood and life…

In tribute to the decades of struggle and pride

That have lifted me up and cut me like a knife…

In tribute to the “almosts” this soul has had

Where hope kept trying but repeatedly failed

This battle has finally come to its inevitable end

And the final breath of life has been exhaled…

 

Here lies the soul of this battle’s loser…

Yet the body still lives on and on…

Lifeless…

Soul-less…

Hopeless…

 

I hope you rest in peace for you have always been a good companion…
