I can’t be here forever.

I can’t stay awake forever.

I will have to lie down

And sleep.

Forever.

With each step

My journey nears the end

Yet the destination

Still beyond horizon.

I can’t walk forever.

I can’t wait forever.

I will have to lie down

And sleep.

Forever.

With each moment

My candle burns low.

Darkness gathers

Around me now.

I am young. 

Yet too old.

With each step,

The end gets close.

Yet the destination

Still beyond the horizon.
