Sky gray,
Somber day.
Thoughts far away,
Often pray.

Struggle for life,
Death's slicing knife.
Strands slowly cut,
Anxiety in gut.

Life ebbing with each breathe,
All just stare at death.
Examine heart,
Eternity stark.

Eternal brings,
Deceived, finally seeing.
Eternity begins today,
No further delay.

Grief in letting them go,
Time slows.
Memories awaken,
Loved one can't truly be taken.
