The world Lives On

Where air goes
Water follows
Both flowing nonstop

My mind follows
Like a wraith
Into their ethereal world

We can build another world
Or better still, rebuild this

It’s not in ashes yet
And so, I am convinced
We could a paradise make
Of this our mortal world

It could be immortal too
Life comes and goes
And is never stagnant

Death too
You never see it
Fully die
while you’re alive
The world is living

It only stops for you
When you are gone
And keeps on living
For those you left behind

Even the trees
Know of this
So does water,
So does air,
So does the mountain
That never sleeps

When you climb
Into your grave
To sleep beneath
Our present world
The world lives on.
