Notice

What if,
I faded
Ever so slightly at first
Gently blended
Into the wall behind me
Do you think anyone would notice?

What if,
I dimmed
Steadily, slowly
Slipping invisibly
As day dims into dark night
Do you think anyone would notice?

What if
I slept
Lightly at first
Then ever deeper
As life ebbs into silence
Do you think anyone would notice?

What if
I went
In star like glory
Blazing a Trail
Changing the world as I went
Do you think anyone would notice?
