Daybreak - Poem by Richard Allen Beevor
I could make a life of happiness,
I could build a world of love,
but the walls of death are closing in
as I sit and watch daybreak begin,
I could find a lover or a wife,
I could make a more complete life,
but the walls of death come closer in
even as daybreak begins.
Given the time and freedom
I could start to live,
shown a way to ease pain
I shall fulfill my destiny.
I would weld metal for a new era,
a vault of timeless love,
I would seal within an envelope
hopes of a hearts desire.
When morning light appears,
daybreak new begins,
give me love for no return,
no exchange of rings,
expect my love not for long,
now this body less than strong,
the walls of death are closing in
to crush life as daybreak begins.
