Until our Last Drop

Drip by drop, it flowed and flowed.
I love dancing in the afterglow.
It's a dark night, with mist kissed roads,
But there's no place I'd rather go.
I dance in the dark, I do what most don't,
I enjoy the things that most people won't.
I understand that beautiful things come out of the dark.
I don't find peace in the rain's trickle, just the thunder from its spark.
Without the lightening, we could hardly see the rain.
Usually there is beauty where there is pain.
Together, all color ends up black.
Drip by drop,
We all fall flat.
Just because some if us find peace in the flash,
Doesn't mean that all us little raindrops, won't end up scurrying down the same path.
The point to the story is we're all gonna die.
Why not try to understand each other, before we finish this great goodbye.

poet Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
