William Milam

(Oklahoma City, Oklahoma)

Walk as I Walk, and Die as I Die


Walk with me my child, let us walk along the shore
For there is something I must reveal to you
A great mystery explore

Because life my child, is what we are all around
From the moment you were conceived
To your first wonderful sound

My child, I am slowly growing old, getting cold
And there is a great something that I need to say
Something important, only on this special day

I want to you to be great and wonderful, the one who they trust
To not be blinded by Greed
Bribes or Lust

So will you walk as I walk, and die as I die
And you will great my child
Like a bird in the sky

Our life is twofold; Sleep hath its own world,
A boundary between the things misnamed
Death and existence: Sleep hath its own world,
And a wide realm of wild reality,
