Death Comes

Death it is not so scary
I am not afraid when it arrives
I am gone my soul survives
So my body alone they will bury.

I am not afraid of dying
When my time comes I will go
Place me in an urn or in a meadow
That time I will not be denying.

Someday soon I will be dead
That will be the end of my existence
I will go without fighting or resistance
Nothing more will I fear or dread.

My life I am not afraid to leave
And I will not leave with guilt or shame
When that day comes my body death will claim
And my soul GOD will retrieve.

I am not afraid to die
Death will visit us one and all
I will not beg and I will not crawl
I will accept it as I say my last goodbye

Death it is a doorway
It is not a dream or a dead-end
One day that event we all will attend
As death comes for us all one day.

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
