Bleed on me my sun and sky
and I'll absorb the last of you
as you wither up and die.
Let's pray together and say goodbye.
Minutes burn behind cold eyes
caught between a second
and the last of its nine lives.
Let's sit together and wave goodbye.
Understand the problem,
but don't know why
it's so easy to watch it die.
Sitting alone and waving goodbye
Every flower has bloomed.
The last of all now consumed.
Betwixt nature and time entombed
