Eternity

“Eternity, please find me

It’s colder than before

The world took all it came for

And left me at your door

The only life I’ve known

Slips beneath the waves

Forced to face my fears

I close my eyes to disappear

Forever, whisper to me

“The end is drawing near

So dry your eyes

No need to cry

Your dreams won’t leave you here

At the gates we’ll find you

Together we’ll walk through

Take my hand and we will find

A time that knows no years”

Where silent songs are whispered

As they fall on deafened ears

Eternity move through me

And we’ll dance away our fears

To a symphony of broken dreams,

By a sea of make believe,

Like a work of art,

Take your abstract heart,

And pray the pieces all align,

Elysium, eternum,

Take you softly into me,

Into me, infinity

forever, eternity.

Messorem

On swift a wing I come to thee, that which all men earn

Dark am I, within your mind, I am the thoughts that chill,

A frightful shimmer, behold but a glimmer,

The lesson all will learn

 

And some, they say, no light of day, or even soft a glow,

No star in the sky, or moon in the night, dare show when I am near,

I am the fear, the bringer of tears

Who sings the song of woe

 

In your final moments pray, but only I preside,

Beg and cry, head to sky, no pardon you will find

No place to hide, to stand behind.

Body and soul divide

 

All your mortal values gone, great wealth and pedigree,

Your vanity and prime, all lost, the moment you found me

Despair am I, as old as time

For I the Reaper be.

 

Fui quod es, eris quod sum.

De mortuis nihil nisi bene.

Venit dies in qua vos oraverint,

“Sit tibi terra levitas.”
