Rain falls within,

As blood flows without.

What is it like before you die?

What do you think about?

Do you think of misery,

Or things you could have changed?

Or are the thoughts inside your mind,

All but rearranged?

Does a sudden calm approach,

And whisk away the fear?

Or are you reminded painfully

Of those who once were dear?

Does death bring with it pain,

Or do you feel at all?

Does that last breath feel like floating,

Or hitting a solid wall?

The answers to these questions

Are a mystery to me,

But I don't think it'll be long now,

Before I get to see.
