    I will tell you exactly
    And only the facts.

    You are trapped a little for a time
    And unhappy

    Then your face hollows and it has a death mask
    As the soul withdraws from the body

    And you look at me and tell me who you see
    It is always someone,
    Sitting there like me,
    But on the other side of things
    Waiting for you.

    And suddenly you become a column of white light
    And leave the body all at once
    Going upward,
    I know not where.

    And the body flickers, because it had a light and it is going out
    And it shimmers for a bit
    And then it is just a body,

    And you are gone.

    And sometimes I see you
    In my mind’s eye
    Standing beside me
    Making idle conversation
