Your deepest part

Is longing to retire

But death is more than just death.


The pain is palpable

In the middle of the night

When the creation shuts down.


And the world is quiet

Emptiness refused to leave

But breathing still.


Holding on and hoping

And ‘though the pain still lingers

You still wish for the best.


To rest with a peaceful heart

Because in the end

We all want the same.


To love and be loved,

To find comfort and

To feel that we’ve arrived.


Surely that day will come

You may not hear it in the news

Or read in the tabloid.


But you’ll certainly feel it

On the flick of air

In the stillness of the night.


When the heart becomes mute

To the sound of its own breathing

Wanting what it cannot own.


Silent, you restless voice!

      CrisSp...very well written and deep. I got a different feel from others, I could imagine one laying down at end of day and drifting off in peace/ comfort , to the next phase of what lays beyond, still longing to be remembered by loved ones and hoping they made a difference in life...

      just my thoughts....up & sharing

      Cris, once again you've graced us with an awesome poem. I just love the song you chose. Every time I hear it, I think of the movie "Ghost", although I fell in love with this song long before the movie was made.

      Wonderful poetry Cris, I can't believe I missed this the first time. The lines: "To rest with a peaceful heart

      Because in the end

      We all want the same.

      To love and be loved,

      To find comfort and

      To feel that we’ve arrived."

      ..are so true. "Unchained Melody" can't go wrong with that. ..Well done once again. Voted up.

      I died once. I first felt my lungs shut down, then my heart stopped. One organ at a time.
