"I solemnly swear that I am up to no good"


I know my life fades slowly away
Yet still here I lay

The brilliant blue sky blinds my eyes
A robin squawks and a sparrow cries

The sun shines wrapping me in a warm cocoon
It shines in the day hiding the shimmering moon

The grass wraps around me, holding me close
As the wind whispers and blows

The leaves from the tree hang above my head
Sticks bellow out like a thick, winding thread

Water rushes against a river bank
Minnows swim furiously as if in a giant fish tank

My mind struggles, lost in confusion
My eyes close, and I fade into oblivion
