From Who the Bell Tolls


We all must walk through the shadow of death
Often we mistake the value of a breath
To those who left us behind,
Time can never rewind.

Yesterday notes rang out clear
Now silence is all we can hear
Standing in the echos of the past
Losing the sounds in contrast

Followed by memories we wish we could recall
Forgotten by the history of us and all
As we inch closer to the end
Followed by compassion, all pretend

We see either peace or hell
As our bodies are forever frail
Fear of whats to come
When closed eyes are never undone

Bells chime no longer in our heart
As this end is only a fresh start
Moments begin to slip away
We realize we only wish to stay.
