Scratching, scratching, I need to get out
Clawing and digging I arise from the earth 
If I could still breathe I would have gasped,
But I can not. 

My bones straighten, what's left of my muscles tense
I forgot how blue the sky was,
How crisp the air is this time of year
I missed it without realizing. 

With each step around my designated plot I see my life unfurled,
Each moment of each day played over and over. 
I revel in it until the memories are gone, 
And I'm left with only the blue sky and the crisp grass and my empty grave.
