A Blessing

Death is a blessing
I want to rest
My life is over
I gave it my best.
I gave it my best
I gave all I had
But one by one
Things became bad.
Death is a blessing
I want to rest
My life is over
I gave it my best.

    ''It is far better to have loved
    and lost it;
    than to have never loved at all.
    If we can't be vulnerable
    to the allow the feeling
    we can't have the experience at all.
    If the wind blows
    you have to stand in its midst to know it.

    Grief is a part of life
    that whispers death into the heart
    that is our dark night
    and it fractures bones
    in the daylight of memory.

    All I can remember now
    are the dried leaves
    that were left jammed
    beneath the screen door
    when she left.

    It was much later
    that I discovered
    she wasn't the only one
    that knew how
    to kiss my dreams
    to make them real.

    There is more
    than one diamond
    to be found
    in the diamond mine.

    A nice poem. One who has given his/her best, need not worry. Instead of giving one's best, when things start getting bad, death becomes a better option, although death is absolutely in God's domain. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
