The kiss of death – Poem

The kiss of death

Is the kiss of death
A sweet refrain
Wherein we find
The love that stained
Our hearts
While temporarily housed
In earthen vessels?

Do we break free
Bask in Loves eternity
To live among those
Who have gone before?

Is the kiss of death
Just an impetus
For pain
A vessel housing grief
Poured through our loved ones veins
Stirring belief
We are no more,
Crossed to the far shore?

Do we soar on high
To float above
No thought for the world
The ones we love?

Or hang caught in between
Listening to screams
Of ones we’ve left behind
Trying to find
Peace that is so near
To the sound that we hear
Calling our spirit higher.

Is there a way
When death comes to say

It’s time to come home

We can leave a peace
To sooth the storm
So hearts won’t roam
Looking for answers,
Things unknown.

I hope
When it is my time to go
That friends, loved ones,
My children

Life is worth living
Love worth giving,

When all is said and done
Love will come
Open their hearts
Peace will be there
Waiting to share
Its balm.
