Death Nearby

Source of Inspiration


I’m not going to think about it
Therefore it does not exist.
We spend a life playing
this game then feel betrayed
when death comes to call.

Yet without a clear view of death
there is no order
no seasons
coming of age
golden age
there is only self-imposed illusion.

Ironically, the acceptance of death
gives us patience
courage to take action
the ability to surrender.

Death shows us that we
must be cunning, even ruthless at times.
It shows us the value of compassion
and promises us there is
a conclusion in all things
including life.

Walk by my side, Death
not at my back
or in front of me.
Be ever present that
I never take a single moment
for granted, nor forget to be grateful.
