The Poem Then At The End Of The End


THIS POEM THEN AT THE END OF THE END

This poem then at the end of the end
When there are no more friends
And nothing is left to say
But only lonely I go my way
Because no one goes with us when we die
And no one holds our hand against the worms of the sky
And no one no one knows where our soul sighs
And whether God says hi or goodbye
And why oh why oh why do we die
But here in fear those we leave behind
Those who love and know what we at our best were
We make them cry when we die
And all we wish to stop and make never to be
We cannot
Because no one tells us how to forever not die
No one can
Alone alone alone to our end then
Alone alone alone to never be anymore here
Alone alone alone into the ground and under the stone
Alone alone alone alone alone alone alone alone alone alone
Never to be here we with us on this earth in joy and love again.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
