The reading today
was about death.
At my age
the thought of death
doesn't linger far behind
As I think about
what I want to do,
the things I want to accomplish,
the projects that are unfinished,
I am reminded
to do it now.
Now is the acceptable time
There might not be a tomorrow.
Inside I am still me,
being renewed every day,
in soul and spirit.
Yet my aging body
tells me
that it won't last forever.
Common sense reminds me
that I am in
the last stage of life.
Death is waiting in the wings,
reminding me
to live today,
to love and give and enjoy
this day.
Do the things I want to do,
finish the projects
I want to accomplish,
so what I have been given to do,
the words I have been given to say,
will be done and said,
that my little peace
of the great puzzle of life
won't be lost.
Death is my friend,
reminding me
of what is important in life.
Death is a mirror
reminding me of who I am.

This is actually a pretty minful poem, and it really reminds me of a poem by Emily Dickinson, titled after the first line "Because I could not stop for Death".Do give it a read.

That is a really good poem about death. I never knew that you have the talent to write such kind of poems. I totally enjoyed reading through what you have written. I hope that more people would see the talent that you have in writing poems and such. The depth in your writing is really superb. I hope you would continue on writing beautiful poems. I also wish that I would get to meet you in person because of how huge of a fan I am.

Death is the reality of our lives. We all have to go one day or another so thinking about death is just waste of time rather think of what you want to do, what you want to accomplish in your life and such a nice blog written by you

Deaths are always hurting for the closed ones of the dead. As the senior cop dead due to drowning in the pool caused his death, which was surely grief to his family. writing has a lot of information about feelings of the families on the death of their loved ones.
