All Things Bright and Possible

All Things Bright and Possible

When death comes
like the end of love
and holds me to his dreaded promise.
When death comes like a landmine
and all the flowers of spring cannot deter him.
When death comes I want to look up 
to him in child-like awe.

I want to step through the door, 
as if, into an experiment; 
just as I've looked on everything.
Therefore, I consider eternity
as an abstraction,
from the tiniest atom,
to each cycle of seed and blossom, 
all beings created,
are of precious value

I search for conclusions. 
In this trudge to the ‘inevitable.’
I measure every step.

When my life has reached
it's final ebb, let the path
where I have passed
 be strewn with expectation;
daisy fresh and full
of all things
bright and possible.

Suzanne Delaney

    Thanks David I wrote this a long time back and it was read out at the funeral of one of the teachers who died in The Challenger Crash in 1984. I felt very honored to be asked for my poem to be read at such a solemn occasion.
