  • Pain my old friend
    Here to visit me again
    Know that it will never end.
    I will try to transcend
    my physical domain.

    Know that I can depart
    And I can outsmart
    My leaden body
    A shell fo my soul apart
    So useless and unsteady

    So up here hovering
    Near the ceiling
    My spirit looks down
    At my face with a frown.

    So tempting
    To leave
    but my family
    still needs me
    I must stay around
    From my body I cannot bound

    Let me one day
    be pure consciousness and light.
    When I can leave
    my body behind
    Oh pain here I come again.
