Last Beat


final ringing shot
echoing as the end
of a one-hundred year war
hello and goodbye to
another day
fearing this fear
if it goes away
the song’s done too
much never enough
what if I don’t get more time?
echoing and then an end too
scared to hope
the fighting’s done
for good
tomorrow comes with
hello and goodbye
sing another song still
not done yet.
