Maybe Nevermore - Poem by Donald R Wolff JR

And so I wake another day
My mind begins to churn
Thinking from a sleep, I wake
Never to return

Death is within myself
A time that must be learned
A fear of silence, nevermore
Brings a question of concern

It is my fear that I will end
When all I've known is gone
All the promises never kept
With nowhere to belong

In the empty I may be
An actor in a dream
When life wakes all must end
Until another sleep

Here I am a standby, shadow
Played out upon a screen
Acting with the words when given
To fill an empty scene

How is it, in the here an now
My thoughts are giving rise
Am I someones, make believe
Will I really die

A question that shall have no answer
No solace for my mind
If Gods were real and there is Heaven
Am I a toy to wonder why

My concern is not for selfish reason
There is more than just an, I
A feeling for all living creatures
Our fur babies after life

Buried in the heartfelt memories
Is a song that I must sing
Spoken parts of ever after
Within forever, I shall leave

Maybe life is just a story
For someone else to read
All I hope for, is the glory
For all to always be
