I dreamt of the dead last
Night and how they clung
On to life for those last
Few seconds just before
Giving in to that eternal
Darkness and the inevitability
That death does bring
I dreamt of the dead last
And they were not happy
To see me they gathered
To petition my return in
An attempt to clear me
From a death I did not earn
In their hollow eyes were
Questions of my demise and
Why I had come willingly
To the place of their abode
I dreamt of the dead last
And upon my return to sanity
The lesson I think I did learn
Was walk your road with
Meaning from pain there
Is no screening out of human
Misery
I dreamt of the dead last
And now put on my boots
Doing up the laces tight ready
For another days fight for
Death does bring true meaning
To life
