Death Beckons

I've come so far
Allowed my blood to run
My sight is failing
Now that my work is done

I don't know if it was worth it
The blood is trickling now
My veins almost empty
What has it all been for?

Why can't we see the future?
Or change the past?
There must be a way
To let go at last

The blood is pouring now
Staining the stone bricks
Telling my story forevermore
There's nothing left to fix

The blood has drained
Sealing my fate now
Death whispers
In my ear

"Everything is fine now
Close your eyes
Sleep comes so easy
Just go to sleep now
Your work is done"
