You know I like a good prompt and these are M’s for February. Why not give them a whirl.
A lifetime you gave me, willingly,
and I drank and devoured every drop.
My belly full I sense alas my race is run.
I gorged and feared the settings sun
And begged her please to stop
She shook her head and took my hand
And led me to nightfall’s brink.
A price to pay for banquet sweet,
Dark nothing swirled about my feet
And slowly into darkness did I sink.
Into light I melt, to be no more
All I am returned once more
A life lived well, and as I fade
Pure joy I feel for life I made
I smile and am no more
