A Question

If forever ends
Where do you think we will go?
Will we be shadows
Lingering across the earth?
Will I stand
While you fall down?
I'm waiting for the day
When I stand tall
Above the earth
While the sky meets the sea.

We all fall sometime.
And when we do
I will be a ghost
Watching the earth drift away
And then I'll start to cry.

It made me feel sad because the idea of  being alone seemed to be sewn inside the poem. When you said "I will be a ghost" I felt like you were saying you'd be invisible and then you went on to say "watching the earth drift away" which made me feel like you meant that you were left behind. Saying you'd "cry" though made me feel like you were sad because you didn't try to catch up to the world though not because you couldn't.

Usually I do not like this sort of poem, but it was actually very good. I like how serious it is, but for some reason, it didn't make me feel sad.
