Death


death, it just isn't fair,
when it comes,
for someone, you care,
tearing them from your life, over night,
leaving the living, with no fight, left for
life.
don't despair, although death, is always
there, so is faith, and hope,
both of those
will help you cope, when death comes
knocking at your door.
so don't fear death,
look it in the eye, and don't ask
why, for death, completes the circle of
life.

    A good poem. Well written. Congrats. Finding time, pl. go through my poem 'GIFT OF LIFE' where I have stated 'Gift of Life is noble death' (Report) Reply

    I agree. Death is a door to a new life. I read but don't know how true it is that 'those not afraid to die are also not afraid to live'. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
