A Poem About Death, Transference - An End Of Life Transition

You have hit upon the best poetry search online. In this content we have a poem about death. It is called transference because it is an end of life transition.


A realisation that death is out of your hands – an end of life – an end of YOUR life!

The decision ... making of your end. The plea to save.

The Lord’s Prayer – an acceptance of your end – the hope of a beginning?

The fear. The acceptance – brace yourself! Ready? Let go.

Hope for quickness, hope for extension, hope for God.

Reality (what’s this?), is but a split second… gone!

Fading feels eternal. Paralysed. Fading, fading… echoes… looking for God… Seeking… Awaiting the ones I loved, the ones that have faded away – the bright candle flickers into darkness – Tunnels.

Light. Lost but seeking…..

.....WAITING… ...........Waiting… ...........Fading….. Waiting……

This poem demonstrates how important it is to make your wishes known in a care situation. Read my hub on Living Wills to know more on how to be able to make your wishes known, should you can not speak for yourself.

There is a light calling, fading...
There is a light calling, fading...

Very Poignant poem. I must admit to a small degree of envy over someone's final moments here on Earth. I still have a bit of life in me yet (I'm 43). But, I still wonder what it is they are thinking of in those last seconds here. Great hub; I'm glad I read this, it does link well with The Final Visit. Thank you for the comments on my hub. Be well always, my friend. :-)

Interesting read on death. It's simply rebirth into another dimension, the spirit and soul lives the flesh dies, yet the thin vale opens up and accepts us into another dimension. Death should never be feared but rejoiced and not mourned. Great hub, rated UP..

Thank you Vincent. It isnt the act of death, but the fear of the act. Change can be daunting for most people, especially when they no longer have control. How we cope is individual and it is only when our time comes that we can truly know - the rest is speculation.

Thank you for dropping by and your valued contribution. Bless you.
