Lay me down in darkness

Never again to see the light

Not that it matters much though

I never fought the good fight

So go on now and lay me down

Let me sleep in peace

Mourn me not for I am here

It's just you cannot see

So go on now and lay me down

As the darkness covers my eyes

The black shroud floats on down

Light as a feather at the final release

So go on now and lay me down

As the darkness comes to claim me

Worry not for I am there

Whenever you shall need me

So go on now and lay me down

And let your memories remain

Never shall you sheild your heart

From the bitter pain

So come now and lay with me

Down in the darkness

And never shall you be afraid

Because now you will see

Everything is better here

Laying down with me

What do you mean by "lay me down in darkness?" Upon starting your poem, I thought of a grave. -but, why then would you want that other person to lay with you if they're still alive? Perhaps they should lay down their pain.
Wonderfully written. Thanks for posting it.
