"Dying Thoughts"

Drifting in and out
of consciousness,
leaving one life
to enter another,
feelings of sadness
mixed with joy.

No desire to leave
the ones he loves,
a wish in his heart
to accomplish more,
a fear of what lies ahead
embodies his mind with images.

Anxiously awaiting death's grip
memories playing vividly in his mind,
pondering treasures
wondering if they will be lost,
knowing the ones he leaves behind
can cherish keepsakes
until the end of time.
