Life is not the End of us - A Pćan
« on: September 09, 2019, 04:10:05 PM »
Commissioned by The honorable Darkonian and representative of the Eternal Order, Sentinel Zeles

Life is not the end of us,  a certainty I know.
Though the bones may turn to dust, do not weep for the grave.
We are born into this world not ready for the show.
Each of us through life are hurled, attempting to be brave.

But we cease, one way or other.
Mother, father, sister, brother.
The heart will beat its last.

'What then?' you weep, afraid of death.
'What of my final breath?"
Time spent is spent too fast.

But we, those still not gone, are part of something better.
A chance to finally break the bonds of this mortal fetter.
For we can love, and sing and shout.  And we can still remember.
Each one of those whose fires died out, to the last glowing ember.

Remember each.  Remember well.
The joy and even sorrow.
Life is not the end of us
When others have tomorrow.
