Death Is Hovering Around. Poem by Dr. Antony Theodore

Death Is Hovering Around.

Rating: 5.0


An unexpected heart attack.
He falls down and dies.
He was my dear friend.
He dies in front of me.
I stand helpless and ask ‚why? ‘

Leprosy eats away body parts.
Doctors treat them as they can.
But patients die, miserably slowly.

An accident on the road.
Driver dies a miserable death,
suddenly without any preparation
for a death and an after-life in faith.

A mother of five loving children
dies of cancer and the children cry
loud to Almighty God.. „Why"

An accident on the road. Driver dies a miserable death, suddenly without any preparation for a death and an after-life in faith. A mother of five loving children dies of cancer and the children cry loud to Almighty God.. „Why.. .. cause death is hovering around. Death happens as per Karma. Beautiful poem on death and helplessness has been painted touchingly. Thank u dear sir for posting this poem.

Death can and does touch us all, take us all. Remembering this is important. It helps us be grateful and helps focus our living. This is why, it seems to me, that the hope of resurrection is central to our understanding... I am aware I write as one who thinks and writes with some distance from the immanence of death to me personally. But it’s the only way I can think and write of it now—not from my own experience mainly but from the most-reliable witness of Jesus himself. -Glen

From the moment a spirit slips into a body, death is his/her constant companion. If the baby dies in pregnancy, or is born, death is the reason. Life and death are two sides of the same coin, born together at the exact same moment, The many different ways at which we become Death's guest are superbly penned in this very evocative and insightful poem. So, thought provoking, it truly makes the reader think. The stark reality of death is painted in exquisite visual detail. Nobody leaves this world alive and death is not to be feared, but welcomed. It is the doorway through which we go back home again. Yes, death brings sorrow, sadness, tears and so much grief, but if we remember that only the vehicle (the body) which enables a spirit to traverse the human world has died, not the spirit who was within the body, there is much comfort and consolation for those who are bereaved. I love the excellent choice of graphic, depicting the return back home after living a lifetime. If death teaches us anything is surely is that life is short and we should enjoy each and every moment of it, because it will never be repeated. Each lifetime is a once off! A supreme write very impressively penned. Thank you for sharing, dearest Tonyyyyy...
