The Fight Against Death

Fight hard against the death that is threatening
To take your very last breath. Do not go gently
As the day of judgement and final reckoning
Is approaching. Do not be afraid of the barely
Lit sky as it takes the hope you tried to hold
Onto in your calloused hands. I always pray
For your survival and fight against your cold
Death. There is not enough time for us to say
What needs to be said, but I still wanted to
Say I love you and I hope that your tears keep
You alive. The light slowly begins to leave you
And the dirt that others keep trying to sweep
Off your grave is reemerging, but that should
Not stop you from the forestís burning wood.
