Dark night with a thin veil in between,

often thought about but rarely seen.

Asleep now, but not to dream.

Never sought after, unless ye plead insane;

loss of life, though not of name.

In the end it's all just a game.

Roulette, bingo, blackjack, the lotto...

Who's next? One can never know.

So quickly do those in our lives go.
