The Death...And After - Poem by Lal Parameswar

The time has come to say good bye,
To this beautiful world for a time,
I was afraid all these times,
But my soul whispered in my ears,
'Let me tell what you'll feel,
At first you'll see the beauty,
Even in the silliest grass of ground,
You'll feel the soothing breeze,
Then fly with the winds for a while,
Oh you glide over the dark clouds,
To pour down as the soothing rain,
You'll swim with the blue whales,
And down you dive for a pearl,
To find the forest deep inside,
You'll run with the wild horse,
And climb up the rainbow,
To touch the horizon and the sky,
Then jump 'er to see the sun as a pearl,
And all the stars like the grains of sand,
Then you'll go beyond to bliss,
To find and feel the ultimate truth,
That is what I call 'the Absolute'.
It is time for you to go,
And explore all the wonders there,
Open the doors to eternity,
For some it is what the Heaven of Gods,
Some call it the 'end of journey',
But for me it's another adventure,
So don't be timid, don't hesitate,
For you are nothing but myself.'

    Awe some imagery. Imagination of what effect death causes on a human is really superb. While majority dreads even the concept of approaching one's death, visualizing the same with positive mind set is laudable and it shows tranquility's reign in the mind of that individual.
    Very beautiful exploration of the dreaded death. Thanks for sharing.10+
