Death-The constant Companion


Every life ends with death
Yet unknown is the complexity!
Death is an enigma! Death is a companion!
Death is the answer! Death is the beginning!

Complexity is a constant confusion
Certain to happen everyone knows
When and how no one knows

Mystery indeed origin of death
Saints and sages tried to know
Nothing to find walked into death

Escorts the death from our birth
Goes with us where shadows can’t
Inseparable it’s and beyond imagination

Troubles and traumas ends with death
So are comforts and luxuries
Veil of soul blown off by death

Existing life ends with death
New journey begins after death
New fate decides course of that life!

    Death is a constant companion, following us from birth like an inalienable shadow and what follows is still a mystery not known to any one living. The only thing certain about death is that it is an inescapable reality! A nice poem ! ! (Report) Reply

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
