the spirit rose at midnight

the years
have captured
up to my soul,
freeing me
from life,

my light
begins to fade,
forever
i dream
of years ago,
long ago,
what i remember
to be young,

the world
touched me,
taught me,
memories
that helped me
through my life,
i understand
better now,
so much
to be thankful
for,

i can smile
a fading
slipping smile,
with
each passing
breath,

i feel at ease,
my eyes losing
their focus,
but, i hear
a familiar voice
calling to me,

my pain is gone,
i no longer
hurt
like i did
for years,
i feel
young again.
