Dancing In Death

I dance in death to overtures of Bach
In the background violins softly play,
Body and mind start slowly to decay
Hear the tick, tick, ticking of midnights clock.
In death, in death; 'tis such a sweet scene,
Bach fades into the midnight hour.
The ending of song in all its power,
The beauty of death; ‘tis but a dream.

How could I dream that death is so sweet,
Oh, life why don't I cry out for thee?
I never knew death had honor and pride
'Tis a new beginning for a life complete.
The closing of mine eyes has made me see
Play on dear Bach, let me dance by your side.

    I see a poet of great talent. This Italian Sonnet reads like a dream. Into the favorites I think...regards Margaret

    Very interesting poem. and most times such as right now, I completely agree with it...Death isn't something to be feared and while your still alive if you understand that then I think you reach a new leave of understanding not only in the world, but in yourself. And as long as you live life to it's fullest in death you should have no regrets. Great poem Travis. Love Destiny
