Death and Dreams

Poetry Project #22

Once death consumes all there is

There’s nothing left to replace the pain.

Once life takes that fatal plunge

There’s nothing left for us to gain.

Lying down in meadows of sorrow

Lightly dipped in mourner’s mists

Looking up at the sky with wonder

Thinking of all that our lives consists.

Realizing this creation will always continue

And seeing the sky with clouds adrift

Knowing once a life is taken

To those clouds that soul’s a gift.

Asleep in grass of green delight

Dreaming of times with those departed

Recalling the scenes of a prosperous life

Of times we laughed completely wholehearted.

Now awake in a world of hate

I’ve tried to start a life anew

When is death, how long should I wait?

I just want to be with you.
