I’m not totally sure where this came from. Maybe it’s the dying of the year which turns my thoughts to the brevity of life. Perhaps it’s the countless deaths of people who have left us in 2016 – public and personal grief seems to have been all around this year. Whatever the reason, these words happened.
Did nobody warn you I wasn’t immortal?
One day I may fall prey to life’s harsh regime.
No, nobody warned me you were only human
That one day you’d slip into eternal dream
So now, ask me questions, and tell me your deepest
Fears and desires so that we might share
All of the words that will one day fall silent
The day you might waken to find I’m not there.
