And Death is True

She exemplifies death As death becomes who she is Lying there pale faced With parched lips Death floats about her As stringy as her hair is She’s white as powder Breathing shallow She has the aura of death Upon her, she’s dying And nothing can bring her back To where she was before Life has ceased Nothing is the same All has changed She has become death And everything death is Is within her Not a bleat of air She doesn’t breathe normal For she has become death No other hope is left White faced with death written All upon her lips Not a single breath Is formed And never will be again She has finally lost And death is true

    Russell; If this is someone in your family - my condolences to you. Death is a part of life, something we can not avoid. Many blessings. Did you read the Soupmail? .... Lucilla

    Such truth is hard to accept.....in spite of how much we resist believing it. Coming to grips........that is sometimes too too much! Well done, Russell.
