Alphabet Poem #15

The O poem.

Other than the whole dying thing, we’ve had it pretty good

It was bound to happen someday
though I never thought quite like this
After long enough together
there was bound to be an ending
though I never thought quite like this

The moment came, and I had to deal
though I’d assumed I had a lot more time
Yet here it was, in front of me
here—now—in front of me
though I’d assumed I had a lot more time

Now it’s over and done with
but for the thoughts running through my mind
Life as I know it has changed forever
never to go back to what it was
but for the thoughts running through my mind
