A part of everything and nothing at all

Before the beginning and after the end

I have left everything I have loved

I have left everything I have hated

None can stay with me, no matter how hard I try to keep them

They use me every moment they are alive, but eventually, I cause them all to die

Do they forgive me? For what I have done to them?

I give their lives meaning, but without me, their lives would not have to end

Some complain that I am not enough, others complain that I am too much

Some curse my existence, others say without me their life would have no meaning

I was there at the beginning and I will be there after the end

It is cold, to be so surrounded by everyone and everything but still be alone

What is it like to have an end?

Forever means nothing if you are alone in it

Life has its time, bright and joyful

Death walks behind her, steady and firm

They are curious about each other, but they have never met, and never will

I see them both when it is their turn

They keep me company when they can, but they leave me in their end

I hate that everyone moves on without me

But I love the moments we share

I hate when I get blamed for things I don't mean to do

But I love that I can be a part of everything and be everywhere

I have left everything that I have hated

I have left everything that I have loved

If I could be anything other than what I am

Then maybe I could finally end

But what happens after my end?

what happens after the end of time?
