Swan song

I have been rejected, told to get ready for my swan song

I am no longer needed here

Is this a trick or is it true

Am I no longer needed by you?

I was told only moment ago

That your thoughts have wavered till finally no…

You don’t want me, so I shall go

Preparing a place to sing my song

Wondering what I have done wrong

I have suffered here in life for you

Suffered so much, you have no clue

But if you don’t need me then I shall leave

There isn’t another like me

These words – do heed

I am one of a kind, made just for you

But if you don’t want me, what can I do?

Once you’ve decided I am no longer a dream

I have to vanish, though it’s extreme

I have to go; there is no place for me here

But if you want me again, you’ll have to wait for years

For I will have to live again

Start anew with different kinsmen

I only hope that life is kind

That you will want me, that’s my bind

But you can’t wish a new life for me

Doing something else away from thee

You have no power over that

I was made for you and that is that!

Do I sing my song and die quite soon?

Or in your heart, is there room?

For a little one like me?

You have such power, don’t you see?

What’s weird is the spirits told me to add 16:16 to this but didn’t know how, so I chose it as the time.
