My heart is sinking, down through my chest, 
and all I want is an eternal rest. 
To be enveloped by a bed of flowers, 
as I sleep unbothered by the passing hours. 
My sorrows buried deep by the heavy dirt, 
as I forget all of my toils and hurt. 
To be at peace, 
and free of pain, 
secure a new lease 
in earth’s shelter from the rain. 
How nice it would be, to lie softly, 
in a bed of carnations, made just for me. 
To say goodbye to the clouds 
waving in the lilac sky, 
as I sink slowly down, 
and gently die.
