Body and Soul

As I was walking down a road,
Engrossed in thought that day.
I never even heard the car,
That took my life away.

It ran my body over,
While I just stood and stared.
To die today I hadn’t planned,
And I was not prepared.

I looked about, for I had heard,
A tunnel should appear,
For me to walk into the light,
Now free from all my fear.

But I wasn’t any different,
I did not grow my wings.
Horns didn’t spring out from my head,
I checked for all these things.

So what was I supposed to do,
I couldn’t just stand there?
So I went to see my body,
Was it broke beyond repair?

It was then I saw the silver cord,
A shiny slender thread.
It joined my solar plexus,
To the ‘me’ that lay there dead.

Then I thought I saw ‘me’ moving.
In that instant things went black.
And I found myself now lying,
At the roadside on my back.

It’s been some time, and now I’m well,
A memory of the past,
But I’ll not forget the moment,
That I thought had been my last.

Though torn out from my body,
I remained myself, and whole.
In that moment I discovered,
My life-force was in my soul.

My death taught me a lesson,
As only ‘dying’ does.
But I wonder where I’d be today,
Had that car been a bus!
