Beyond our time

Beyond the window, trees, plants and blue sky
I look much further to the world out there
I see the birds flitter and fly in front of me
Much farther I wonder about the people
How many are living, loving and laughing?
How many lie waiting for their final breath?
Do they suffer, connected to robotic kidneys
Their hearts needing a jolt back to beating?
When does living stop being living?
Replaced with existence for others
How long to prolong that which is meant?
For whom do we stretch this time?
