DEATH "The Final Frontier"

DEATH: “The Final Frontier”

As far as the naked eye could see
Death with force was there to be

Treasuring in its heart the cries of a score
It has no longing yet longs for more

A reality, a trial that stands apart
None shall dare to stop the cart

As relentless & overpowering as it may seem
It bore an end to my beautiful dream

And the time finally came when the curtains were drawn
The sun kept shining, but without a dawn

Its taste, as humble as its daunting fragrance
Was nothing but a witness to its haunting presence

Such was the splendor of this magnificent feast
Ultimate peace, to say the least

With nothing at all then left for me
Death my dear was there to be

    Habib! This is a very touching poem. I know the cause of such depressing thoughts in you. In my view there is a lot left for you in life. The sun of hope is shinning on the horizon with a promise to brighten your life. Death is inevitable and is bound to come at an appropriate time. Prior to that you have a role to play -such a role that brings cheer in other's lives. This and this alone gives fulfillment. Thanks for your comment on my Haiku Buried Hearts. -Mohammad
