Our Epitaph

By: Stormbird Throneshaker

Once upon a time,

seems to be our epitaph,

at the start of our life's story,

the one that didn't last.

~

The end never comes,

the way we want it to,

when all is said and done,

our mourners are few.

~

That's the way it goes,

from the cradle to the grave,

we're putting on a show,

just to stow it all away.

~

Life throws a hard curve,

we don't know what to do,

it's like I'm in love with her,

but I'm still in bed with you.

~

It's the things that we dream of,

our hopes and all our wishes,

trying to keep our heads above,

while our feet break the dishes.

~

That's the way it goes,

from the cradle to the grave,

we're putting on a show,

just to stow it all away.

~

Once upon a time,

seems to be our epitaph,

at the start of our life's story,

the one that didn't last...
