This Life

Thinking long about life

I have never dared

But with sound filled with understanding

I speak about this life short lasting

You look at me with confused eyes

I sigh and bow

This life

Cannot teach me more

I want you to remember me when I was around

When you bury me into the ground

When you scatter my ashes into the sea

I want to remember you

When I leave this place

For it is sure

I will be gone before you

Life is not a gift to me

Not a thing that could save me from destiny

Remember me

When you hear of my passing

Do not cry

I kissed you before I left

That picture I always have with me

It was here even when I relinquished life
