Shutting down, shutting down; shutting down:
All senses rushing away;
Light that has glowed so brightly,
Growing dark forever and a day.
Retreating from swift, encroaching, blackness,
Thoughts succumbing as memories take flight;
Embracing the escape of inevitable death,
Transcending invisible barriers of light.
And I turn from approaching darkness,
Vacating the body that once was mine;
Shedding fear to accept understanding
Existing; beyond space, and time.
Now flushed, with peace and knowledge,
Saturated with a love, born of being,
Coalescing with unbound universal spirits,
Assimilated with a oneness, so supreme.
Bathing forever in life's unseen kudos,
Where all don the metaphysical crown,
Beyond destinies coincidence and chaos,
Shutting down; shutting down: shutting down.
