If Death Be Cure...


If death can halt the anguish, pain in heart,
And bring reprieve to pleading prayers long,
Welcoming it, accepting it is good,
Than suffering in silence slowly more.

If death be cure to things we can’t endure,
Why lament for a loved one, it has seized?
Death ends diseases, intractable pain
Effortlessly and almost like magic!

Just think about death in ways positive;
A piece is off life’s chess-board bit early;
Why fume or fret or grieve if death should come?
We all will leave this world to next welcome!

Crying is good for pent-up emotions;
But weeping cannot improve things on earth;
Praying is better when loved ones are gone;
Let souls of dead await in peace for mirth.

So, thank God if death comes by surprise, stealth;
God is the Master of the universe;
He knows what's best and time for every soul;
Our after-life is prime in earthly life.

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

O World! O Life! O Time!
On whose last steps I climb,
Trembling at that where I had stood before;
When will return the glory of your prime?
No more -Oh, never more!
