The End
Through the fog and haze his memory fades in and out
 People and places from another time so long ago
 Now near the end he realizes that life is only
Nano-seconds in the span of that wonderful
 stardust of time
 Reflections….reflections and regrets are few
 in his aging mind
What was… is forever gone and what is to
be no man can see
Day in and day out, face in hands, waiting…waiting
for the Inevitable
Sunrise…sunset, Sunrise, sunset
Everyone’s gone but he…
Content, he now welcomes the alternative…
the finality of it all…
the end!
