I don't remember when I wrote this, or why.

In the heat of
A hot summers night
 My mind is wandering 
 Beginning to stray
Standing where no man should stand
Sheets of water Upon the sand
Another trick Played by the sun
I wish my journey Had never begun
Three days ago I was in my prime
Now Iam nearly At the end of my time
My stomach feels sick And my legs are weak
A drink of water Is all I seek
Sand in my eyes Was my last sight
Just to awake To the frost of night
The moon is full And the sand’s still warm
The horizion turns red From a distant storm
In no time at all I can feel the sting
Of wind swept sand Peirce my skin
The pain is unbearable
It is no way to die
Yet here Iam
And here I lie
Slowly but surley
Nature blends me in
And leaves no trace Of where I have been.

This flows so simply and is easily read. We need to be like sand going through the hour glass and going around and around with our lives intact. Timing is something in life too and you are here for a purpose.

Your sentiments express the "nothingness" of the physical body. Fortunately, the spirit never dies. Thank you, Tony. Love and peace,

Pondering, thinking and yet there is a subtle truth exposed, nicely done....
