The Beauty Of Death Xiv

Rating: 3.0
Part One - The Calling


Let me sleep, for my soul is intoxicated with love and
Let me rest, for my spirit has had its bounty of days and nights;
Light the candles and burn the incense around my bed, and
Scatter leaves of jasmine and roses over my body;
Embalm my hair with frankincense and sprinkle my feet with perfume,
And read what the hand of Death has written on my forehead.

This was read at my husband's burial and it helped a little to fill the void he has left in my world.

This is so beautiful. I was crying while reading this remembering my late little brother who has gone seventeen years ago. Talk not of my departure with sighs in your hearts; close Your eyes and you will see me with you forevermore.

My thoughts, too. I also cried. So many of my loved ones are gone, and I will soon join them.
