The time has come to begin the end.
From the moment of birth, begins your death.
Paddle hard to get 'round that final bend,
But savor each moment, each life-giving breath.
I have reached my end tomorrow,
And yesterday I will begin.
You who mourns me in such sweet sorrow,
Dare I be measured by the fouls of my sin?
I will be gone, but still I am here,
Breathing, again, that one last rattling breath.
Patience it takes to wait, I have none.
In the beginning of my life, my death.
