The Last Requiem

My dirge will echo through the woods
Morning lingers in the trees
Shadows shall consume these notes
Requiems shall stifle my silent screams

My sun is setting into mists of the ocean
The murmur of the trees rings loud and clear
Final notes of mine I can’t set in motion
Unfinished this song I’m afraid, death I do not fear

One last day I beg for, one last winter I ask
Thousand voices scream inside, a face, a thousand masks
Let me finish this piece, then I’ll step into the shades
Compose this silent Symphony, and into the shadows I’ll fade

The bird of death pecks away at my glass pane
By the window I sit, frantic, outside it sits in pouring rain
Frantic to write the last few notes, before it is in vain
The voices inside shouting, mind numbing with pain

These sounds buried deep inside, secret I cannot keep
Have to spill them out on paper, they cannot die with me
Tunes so forlorn, notes so numbing, even death will weep
The bird shatters the window, the voices finally set free

The notes shall resound, in (y)ears to come
In garden of posterity this song is hummed
This tune shall well outlive my bones
My last requiem echoes over silent stones
