Death's Second Self


This mythical fascination with immortality

I believe each moment here is precious

Though I know Death will stop for me

Then the life I live here most relish.


When that time comes and I must leave

I wish my time here remembered well

Though those left behind for me may grieve

The example I left, I wish, lives on to tell.


No need to hope this earth no limits give

The time it allows is enough for me

I am grateful for those moments it lets me live

Though there may be another place I’ve yet to see.


So, let this dream of eternal life live in lore

That seems to so many so enticing

Here I have yet so much more to explore

That otherwise seems like Death if never dying.
