If the world ends before I do

21 Nov

If the world lasts longer than I do

As my twilight lingers and fades to dark

I ponder another nightfall

Neither mine nor yours

But the nightfall of the world

That comes as secretly as creation

Heralded yet unannounced

Without lyric farewell

Without autumnal warmth

With fury of unrequited love

Not a spectacle caught on TV

No falling towers no cosmic tremor

Unnoticed by the nearest galactic neighbor

Unworthy of attention by our space siblings

Unnoticed unmourned fully deserved

Yet the saddest day ever recorded

For those dying amid species dusk
