A Ballad for Death

A compilation of the first 500 poems I ever wrote.
I write in my free time accross different styles and themes, sometimes there are reasons to what I write and sometimes there are not, but I always try to follow my inspiration.


308. Another go

My life has been long, full of beautiful moments,

I have lived out my years by your side and by their,

I have travelled the world and have been worse for wear,

I have met many friends and a few opponents,

And now the finish line is just around the bend,

How I wish to hold you at least until the end;

The sun is now setting and slowly night will fall.

Why do I want to run? Why do I want to stall?

I don’t quite understand, I thought I was at peace,

I though I was happy but as I see the moon

Rise up into the sky I feel it is too soon…

All these regrets of mine I find I can’t release:

There is still much to do, there is so much to say,

Thousands of paths to tread, many an unknown way,

Many places to go and of course there is you;

Suddenly there is so much I would love to change,

So much that I know not and that I wish I knew…

But life has gone by, time is just out of my range;

This feeling that rises, this unknown but soft pain

Around which I cannot seem to quite wrap my head,

What if we were to fly? What if we jumped instead…?

I know it is foolish but… Wanna go again?
