Blood red water under blood red sky

Blood red water under blood red sky
can you find something to remember me by?
I haven't done much, and only some of it's good-
but if anyone could find something to love, you could.

I'm running out of things to say
it's hard to speak when your last day
is so close to you, and yet so far.
The doors of Death were left ajar.

Blood red water under blood red sky
I'm sick and tired of having to try
I'm not an angel, but I'm not a demon
Despite my best efforts, I am only human.

Thoughts whirl round and round in my head
as, day by day, I wait to be led
somewhere beyond the places I've seen
somewhere special where I've never been.

Blood red water under blood red sky
soon it will be time to say goodbye.
We'll shed no tears, murmur no last desperate lies,
for everyone must eventually die.

Time marches on, and my life starts to fade.
Until, one day, I am finally laid
to rest in your arms, forever will I lie
in blood red water under blood red sky.

Yesterday, upon the stair,
I met a man who wasn’t there
He wasn’t there again today
I wish, I wish he’d go away...

WOW!!! I enjoyed this poem very much!
