Fades Away

Life leaves us all, eventually… or, do we really transform into something else? Time will tell.

Raven Mist- Face To Face With My Mortality

Fades Away
by Michael Romani

Being somewhat civilized
I kept my discontents to myself
More probably cause I realized
I'd find my better answers from a shelf
Looking into the annals of human wisdom
Paying penitence forward for the kingdom
There are some things we don't forget
Like a friend's last breath and the regret
Deeply pitching to lasting exasperation
Held onto with our best of intentions
Least that friend's passing no longer matter
Though at that moment we thought we'd shatter
The chattering classes have it all wrong
They'd be surprised at just how strong
The weak can be in their last moments
And how the strong some times give into torments
Instead of wise words, it's too often just a gasp
Struggling to hold on with one final grasp
And that's how it was that dark, cruel day
When I watched you  silently fade away...
