Dying Live Here


We are dying
Only dying live here
And these days are
Not remaining the same
For ever.

No pleasure
No self-satisfaction
No civility.

I am waiting
For the last breath
I am prepared with shroud
I am with pall bearers
Cremation place is ready
Wood for cremation is ready
I am waiting
For the last breath.

Nothing to do
Everything to see
Everybody to bear.

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust

And pays us but with earth and dust;
