Gone With the Wind
Tonight staring up at the moon
I know one day this life will leave me
And all that will be left of me
Is some bones and teeth
And maybe these words
Written down somewhere too.
It’s enough to leave me speechless
and make my eyes look around
in confusion and wonder.
I see the clouds in the sky
The stars shining above
I feel the blood flowing through me
The vibration of my heartbeat
This aching bit of temporary life.
Maybe it’s true what some people say
And I will continue on in some way
My bodily energy changing form
Becoming one with the stars
And the drifting clouds
Sailing on with the wind.
And maybe these words will live on after I’m gone too
The fleeting thoughts of a mind that is no longer there
But perhaps is still in some way
Touching people like the winds
Of a future world
