Do you remember the void before you Were Born?
That is the void most probably waiting For us all
Nothing to fear, no more tears it’s
Hard to imagine an end, a vacantness
Because we’ve experienced life
But just take a moment
Try and reflect, you were only a Possibility after
Your parents met, had that sliding door
Passed them by
You wouldn’t be here
To ponder why.
From the dawn of man we’ve made up
Comforting tales of an afterlife to
Control our consternation
A place for the good
A place for the bad
A place where you wait to be judged
Death, it’s nothing to be frightened of
The how, the when, is the
Overwhelming dread
We hope it will be gentle and pain free
While we sleep or surrounded by our Family.
Yes, the hard part comes before...
The bucket rolls across the floor.

J.E.
