In wait of deliverance, life lingers ahead Oblivious of what might lay instead Impaled, in pain, in agonizing strain Bereft of peace, life persists to drain With desires unquenched, a life yet to be cherished On the threshold of sanity, only nearly but perished No want to live, no desire to die The matter at hand was just to get by Striving, as I must, to get through this moment A savage ordeal of relentless torment En route to oblivion, my eyes behold The aura, valor, unseen, untold To grant me salvation, my savior has come The daunting magnificence, seen paralleled by none A relief, to me, is the sight of my death For conclusion to misery has finally cometh With the shore of life now drifting away To you, dear one, I have this to say I do not ask you to mark my grave To be remembered, my friend, is all that I crave By M. Hussain Effendi

A feeling of desperation that finally comes to peace. I was with you all the way.

That is by far my favorite poem I have read in a long time. To put it simply, it is beautiful. Thank you for your contribution to the fact that death does not have to be feared.
