    Like General McArthur
    One can fade away
    Not die
    Living for something or someone
    There is always a need for love
    Isn’t it?

    Fading away
    Safely
    From a distance
    Able to watch as sharks and buzzards
    Come in for an emotional kill
    Attacking the weak
    The vulnerable
    The needy

    Fading
    But still able to see the remains
    The changes
    The subtleties
    The feast or famine of your labor
    Have you made a difference?
    Paved the way for others?
    Paved the way for another?
    Does it really matter?
    Questions to answer
    Fading away

    Death is only permanent
    When the spirit has been killed
    Is that why love never dies?
    It is the reason one only fades away

    Mr. Beat

    As usual, you make me read you with my third eye. And I have to admit I'm puzzled by what eye...C. The piece is bittersweet, and very beautiful.

    thank you

    Shade :heart:
