04 Villanelle

Death, a weary death is all for the hope
Towards the end when you strive to be free
Let go the sides of this long downward slope

Always unsure if you’re able to cope
When the time comes you’ll be ready to see
Death, a weary death is all for the hope

Behind you is stretched out a length of rope
While in front you should hear a final plea
Let go the sides of this long downward slope

Or perhaps your thoughts will turn to elope
Despite knowing a vain attempt to flee
Death, a weary death is all for the hope

So on a dark floor we are left to grope
Until our hands become so useless we
Let go the sides of this long downward slope

When time is a close folded envelope
Able to commit and no longer be
Death, a weary death is all for the hope
Let go the sides of this long downward slope
