I Wonder Why I So Much Want To Live - Poem by Shalom Freedman

I wonder why I want so much to live
In the Time I no longer will be here-

I consider it strange
The thought of keeping everything I am and have been alive
When dying is inside life
Like forgetting in every instant's passing-

All of us will be forgotten
Are already forgotten by ourselves
As we live-

There is worse for each of us
Death at the end of Life-
But everyday is numerous dyings
The endless passing by of what we just have been and done.
