Death in poetry



D eliverance/delicate

E verlasting home

A bundance abounds

T rue love at last

H earts will rest



D eath "in the rain"

E xcluding pain

A t last, I fly

T owards the sky

H onest it is not bad to die



D eath comes/it is over

E very heart adjusts

A cceptance ? what else?

T ears flow and just won't stop

H anging on? to what?


D eath means done

E ach one to his own

A ngels wings in flight

T aking broken spirits home

H elp? maybe I could have?

I'll never know

At the loss of a dear Hubber and the coming loss of my Mother Death has been on my mind so much lately. Seems we never want to talk about it and I personally have been un-aware of what it is really like. I have learned it is not pleasant , easy, like we see on T.V. comfortable or quick.

Though it can be sudden it is still hard to handle, especially when someone young dies. Not to say anyone dying isn't a difficult experience...Maybe because I am old now and see death could be near for me, it scares me. Really I am not afraid of dying I just worry about the ones I will leave behind...

However even that isn't good enough...Everyone comes into this world basically alone, and will also leave the same way. It is just hard to think you are no longer needed...I mean after all that has happened and all we have done how can the world do without us?

God Bless and Hugs from G-Ma

G-Ma, Touching hub! An online friend who is a retired hospice nurse says that her patients had this joy in their eyes when dying, so the actual leaving of our bodies is freeing. She is planning to write a book on the subject. I think we may not be needed in the physical world, but needed in the spiritual world. These are my ideas and not necessarily the truth but prefer to see life this way. I too think about death and it's not a comfortable feeling especially since I have a small immediate family. If one passes, my circle gets even smaller.

Hugs to you and your Mom.

VioletSun... "I think we may not be needed in the physical world, but needed in the spiritual world." That is a wonderful thought!! Thanks my dear I needed to hear that.

Yes when my younger sister passed away from breast cancer (some 15 years ago now) I must say she looked so peaceful. My nephew made me go to her room (she died at home) shortly after she went and I must say I was glad he did that. My last memory of her is a very calm and Peaceful one...

Thank You and God Bless...:O) Hugs G-Ma

The Bible says that no one lives to himself and no one dies to himself. We rip a hole in the fabric of humanity when we pass. If not for God mending the hole all would come undone. I live each day to the full because no one knows the day that is appointed for them to depart. Each person is put in our path to effect and to effect us. I am so glad to have met you, Ma.

no body ...Yes and the feeling is mutual...glad to have met you too. This death was such a shock to me and I am still very sad, he was a real gem...

"I think we may not be needed in the physical world, but needed in the spiritual world." VioletSun told me this and I love that thought. He will definately spark up the spiritual world...

Thanks my dear for commenting...:O) Hugs G-Ma

I don't think common sense or all we know to be true can keep death from affecting us. It is a loss to the only existence we know of. I am not sure if I knew Chris but naturally our friends here are so dear to us as we are a family in a sense and I hope you will find peace with it soon.
