Endless as the ocean
And wide as the sea,
I am filled with emotion
Thinking that can’t be…
Loved people come our way,
Then suddenly they pave a new road far away,
As they depart with no warning –
Leaving so early on a silent morning!
We tend to believe that we rule
As we decide, plan, organize, and aim
Oh how ironic, and how fool!
As in a second, there is nothing left to claim!
Death is a path – we all have to take,
It is so real, so daunting, and not fake!
It is the one that takes as far
Leaving it’s door wide ajar!
It strikes at once,
Warning you with every pounce!
It shows pride in its power,
Stressing it every minute of the hour.
It brings heavy silence with it
Pain, anger, agony of no limit!
It does not differ among the human race
Black, white, poor, or rich – as it knows no face!
But once we are back on trek
We humans tend to forget,
We fail to appreciate life at its full
Taking it for granted – all in a handful!
But then death falls on us with a thud
Wrapping its weight in a flood.
To remind us that it will always come our way
With no invitation, or a warning, or even a say!
And when they are gone
Only memories help us to move along,
Leaving us with shattered thoughts
But with a faith ever so strong!
It is life with all its irony,
Its beauty, its harshness
Its bitterness its sweetness –
Beating in our hearts tirelessly!
Acceptance is the key
Acknowledgment makes us knee
To what matters the most –
The Truth, and to that I toast!
