Fear Of Death

I don't know where I have been,
I don't know what i have done,
Only a sense of deja vu hunts me,
A feeling of anxiety lingers in my heart.
A feeling of loosing evreything i have,
Feeling of lying defeated in this battle,
A sense of nostalgia wraps me,
whole life unwinds before me,
A feeling of leaving this all,
And going to unknown place grips me,
Fear of unknown takes away the joy of known,
I don't know but this fear stalks me,
whenever i see something nice,
I am not able to enjoy it's beauty,
for the fear of not being able to see it again grips me,
A fear of the end stops my very beigning,
I know one who comes here has to go from here,
but a feeling of dying without living haunts me,
Fear of leaving lot of things unaccomplished,
a fear of leaving the loved ones behind and moving along,
A fear of loosing this body moving to somewhere unknown.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
