The dying sun

Makes no sound

The bed bangs the wall

As he coughs

The nurses run

But I never saw his spirit leave

I only heard no sound ….

It’s always the living

Left screaming

I’ll tell you what I know

What I’ve seen

—-//

What is my family tree?

My father

Grandparents

All have left the stage

They know what’s next

I’ll tell you what I mean …

But still I wonder

what good am I ?

If I just look away

What good am I

If I’m just the same

What good am I

If I just shut you out

The dying sun makes no sound

But still

All we have is time

And time is all we ever need
