Death and you and I
I saw her standing over me just before I died,
Death-she gave out such a bright lovely white light
She was beautiful! I understood why all life followed her,
Where had I been not to have met her earlier?
She smiled at me as if saying, “Say your goodbyes”,
My voice had withered but my tears they spoke for me,
Tried to speak they stopped me, I couldn’t if I tried,
I glanced at the faces I loved for the last time.
'I do not believe in love at first sight'-
Words you utter, wait until you see her face,
She was impossible to resist, I promise-you will understand,
My past didn’t matter; I dwelled on her-my future,
I gave up everything I adored-just to hold her,
All this you too will do, once again-I promise,
Life had certainly saved the best for last,
I weant to her, or was it her to me?
Hand in hand to the land none has ever returned.
