Death speaks

Surabhi K

To live a full and fulfilling life and to finally embrace death as a friend instead of jumping to suicide

I'm the twin of life,
an end to all your strife!
I'm the deepest slumber you fear!
I'm final and unavoidable my dear.

You cry as you cripple,
loosing all your charms.
You shudder and shrivel
as I hold you in my arms.

I may be gentle or fierce
as The Lord pleases,
I leave your kin in tears
as your life ceases.

I'm the end of your physical self,
but your soul surpasses me!
So worry not and prepare yourself
to come and find peace in me!

You leave this world in my embrace,
I'm the anchor to your new life!
Life after death in The Lord's grace,
is the beginning of your new strife!

Live every moment like its new
till I come and find you!
For this life you have is a gift of God!
So am I! Not a curse as you thought!
