The Ultimate Result of Evolution
The Ultimate Res
When My Heart No Longer Beats

 

When temptations no longer tempt me,
and all visions fade away,
when our hiding place is found,
and our secrets are revealed,

When the summer winds stop blowing,
as the heavens stop the rains,
when the rivers halt from flowing,
and there are no fires to burn,

When the seasons stop from spinning,
as cold winter invades my soul,
brittle fragments of life remaining,
faint memories of years gone,

When the children stop from laughing,
or their laugh cannot be heard,
when our tender dreams no longer
cling to flowers in our midst,

When the shape of time has changed,
all the meaning of coming spring,
that could melt all snow remaining,
all reflections of light unseen,

When the fears almost forgotten,
scatter hopes around like leaves,
when the hours slowly vanish,
and all memories and dreams within,

When the throbbing pains of torment,
ancient scars of wounds unhealed,
stop from aching, stop from hurting,

and as time runs away from me,

When the stars no longer guide me,
and their magic disappears,
and the sounds of your sweet laughter,
become echoes in my dreams,

When the nights galope no longer,
and the stars lose all their sheen,
as all whispers of life subside,
and all memories of you fade.

When my search for light is over,
and my legs no longer hold,
and just silence prevails,
where music once played loud,

When the years cast their shadows
on this weathered wrinkled tree,
and this lined by time old face
has no more smiles or tears to shed,

.................................................

THEN ....... I WILL KNOW........

 

That my hourglass is empty.....

That the brightness of life is gone.....

That my mind is blank forever......

That the thread of life is cut ...
.................................................

That my oceans and seas are crossed .....

That my day's work is done.....

That my poems are now finished.................

THAT MY HEART NO LONGER BEATS.
