    wow..yes even with your loved ones, you can sense when death has arrived, to help them on their journey home..although I do wish we would give him a different name..death seems so dead..but I feel it is only
    the beginning of something much greater.. :) (Report) Reply

    This poem kind of creeped me out thinking about death so much. I dont know why i even clicked on it, but im sure i did. The poem gives a brief descrition of the feeling of death. Talking about how your next, and how death is awating. Very talented rymes that flow throug the poem. Very well done. (Report) Reply

    Nice Poem, short, concise, and to the point; even though it goes against all facts and plays on everyone's fear, it thus fulfills its purpose very well. It has a good familiar rhythm and it rhymes, making it easy to remember, so I am forced to give it a 9.0, and to me - a tough critic (i.e. Blake's A Poison Tree, which I consider one of the best ever, and was reluctant to give it a 10) , but an average writer at best - That's a very good poem! ! ! ! I didn't vote, I'll let your readers determine that grade. (Report) Reply
