How to use "Swan song" in context?

When you're nearing the end of your life, it's easy to think of it as a porch step, a tunnel, a long path towards an inevitable finish. We want to see the end coming, to cling to the hope that it will be gentle and merciful, that we will finally find rest.

And yet sometimes the end comes suddenly, without warning. For some, the end comes quietly, in their sleep. For others, the end comes with screaming and chaos, as the body gives out under the weight of years.

No matter how it happens, when death comes for us, it's a bittersweet moment.
