You Will Die Alone…

Walking on a path
I searched night and day
Your unfathomable wrath
Long nights, I lay

Children playing
Birds singing
Dogs barking
Sun shining

Loneliness prevails
Only death seems worse
Ghost ancestor wails
Colonial curse

Eyes laughing
Hands holding
Long embrace

My life is winding down
Clock ticking away
When will he come ‘round
Darkness coming, can’t stay

Running to sweet abyss
Please swallow me up
No! Black empty hole
Crazy in love, with love…
