Nothing Left To See - Poem by Cecil (C.J.) Krieger

Everything he knew was gone
Except what were his memories
The future and the dawn had merged
And passed away to history
He came to realize that fate
Had given him no guarantee
No foes to best or place to rest
No strength to fight or flee
So if you think you might have seen
Someone that looked a bit like me
With unsung deeds
Wish him Godspeed
For now there’s nothing left to see

Topic(s) of this poem: history, life, memories
