Life Story

Life Story

At the end of the day, sleep
Here the borderlands of life
Shadows of mortality keep
Times of joy, times of strife

A dusk of idols, a falling star
Night closes in, a land of dark
And mists: we look only so far
Fire burning gives brief spark

A crescendo, and a closing note
The music comes to a final end
Pen laid down, last was wrote
A time to rest, not to contend

Each story ends, a new one starts
History the sum of many parts
