The Aforementioned Me

How is it so that it can now be
The venerable guy, aforementioned me
A strut through the park like a wil'o'the wisp
Soft footed through grass frozen so crisp.

Aforementioned me the past tense my friend
Everyone knew except me 'twas the end,
Living forever a bubble now burst
The end it came quite quickly, I wasn't the first.

I remember my eyes not wanting to close,
I wanted to fight it, my fear clearly showed,
Aforementioned me, I sit here with you all,
You can't see or hear me so no need to call.

Aforementioned me, guess that means that I'm dead,
A corpse not a body lies where i once laid
But looking around no more pain haunts you see,
It isn't so bad, this aforementioned me.
