CROSSING OVER

AS I LAY DYING
THE NUMBNESS STAKES ITS CLAIM
OVER MY ROTTING CORPS
AS THE LIGHT OF THE LIVING WORLD
PASSES OVER MY LIFELESS EYES WHILE THE ONCE
MIGHTY DRUM WHICH
FAITHFULLY AIDED THE MINUTE

RIVERS THAT RAN THE COURSE OF MY ONCE LIVELY
BODY
BEGINS TO SLOW BEAT BY BEAT.
WHILE TIME WHITTLES AWAY AT MY
SOUL, I DRAW MY FINAL BREATH
AND TAKE THE
LEAP INTO THE FINITE LIGHT OF DEATH
