What will it be like on the other side?

Will it just be all darkness, a vacuum, a void?

No one to confide in, to share all my woes

No place to escape to, where the pain grows and grows?

 

 

Will I be truly alone in that forsaken place?

No shoulder to cry on, not one friendly face?

A desolate voice crying all through the night

Nowhere to escape to, no chance to take flight.

 

 

Is this truly all that there’s going to be?

A hopeless existence just waiting for me

An endless procession of isolation and pain

No chance of remission, no absolution to gain

 

 

It’s time for acceptance and of facing my fate

Of acknowledging destiny and awaitng the date

Maybe I’m wrong in my cynical mood

Married life may even be good!
