Mother Nature

I am the wind’s whisper of the night

I am the morning-song and her echo

You live off my bounty

I gave birth to your parents

And today, I am dying for you

It astonishes me –

this embrace with poison

The death dance she and I are in

I will die saving you

But you can’t live without me

Will you hear my silent cries

And remember me in time

Or will we destroy ourselves

And leave our decayed remains

To birth a new Mother

And will she create a new race

Or are we the last attempt

Inspired by The Daily Post Word Prompt: astonish
