I Wonder if Death Will be Anything

I wonder if death will be anything 
Quite like living, such as 
Stretching the imagination
And allowing for opportunities 
Of love and selfless giving. Freely
Recognizing one’s demise isn’t something we wish
To dwell upon more often than the beauty of
An early morning sunrise
Or the reflection of our own soulful
Self in another lover’s eyes.  Still, 
I can’t help but wonder what mysteries
Await us everyone; below the ground
Where sights and sounds are frozen,
Deaf and dumb.  While not wishing 
To overstate a point of endless view,
I pray that when they lay me down
I still might see the stars that shine and 
Sunflowers in full bloom.

    Death holds us in its arms till the resurrection, then all things become new. Indeed, the subject of much speculation but clearly described in the book of books. Nevertheless, your poem brings to mind the great question we all ponder. Hugs to you Terry

    There is indeed a life after worldly death. The nature of it is what we aren't fully aware of. Thanks for your consistent visits and comments, dear friend.
