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.
