As The Petal Falls

I held a flower in my hand,

gently picking at it's petals.

It hurt no more, the pain is gone

I felt the solid earth beneath my skin.

Gently rocking me to sleep

My heart in a constant rhythm, ever slowing.

The deep red water, drying around me,

The flower began to dye,

A single petal fell from its stem.

As the petal fell i saw my life,

my triumphs, and my let downs

my good moments, and all of my bad,

As the petal fell I felt my heart stop,

i strained my lungs, but they would take no more.

My hand felt cold as it too went limp.

Finally the petal hit the floor;

I closed my eyes resting... forevermore
