something lurks behind the veil
it waits on me to part curtains and pass through
is it family or friends
who've gone beyond
or old enemies who've yet to learn
the hurts they maintain
only hurt them
or even the passing stranger
who could've changed the tone
and meaning of my earthly living?
is it a gang of guardian angels
henchmen of the One waiting to give me
a last painful send-off? I tread the chosen path so
it hardly matters what lurks ahead of me...
I part curtains and pass in somehow no surprise...
