Death Benefits - Poem by Gregory Huyette

As death approaches it helps me appreciate life,

Since thought of dying makes daily problems fade.

Worries about all material things causing strife

Mean nothing in view of death’s daunting shade.

Death reminds me how precious is each day.

A rising sun engenders hope with its shine

Its movement means limited time to leave my say

To improve the world with my personal design

Death helps me focus on things that really count

Like the importance of love of family and friends,

And secondary significance of wealth in any amount,

Knowing that my body dies but, my soul never ends.
