I am daunted by the sight of death

I was thoughtlessly living my life, Seeing my loved one's struggle I am at loss of words, I am so scared of this evil knocking at my door, From my window pane I can see a glimpse of it, I am daunted by the sight of death. This situation is hopeless, The restlessness in my heart is burning my soul. I am crying while walking on this road full of fog, With me I see a million pair of eyes crying , I was unaware of their pain few days ago, Now I am one of them. All my memories are haunted by the shadow of uncertainty . The dark clouds of pain and agony have surrounded my future, I am scared of tomorrow. In this times of loneliness, almighty is my company. This night is vey long. I need to stay strong. I can hear the bells ring in the background, giving me hope and not letting me collapse down.

Fear arises from attachment to the transient mind body. If we are impermanent, then why fear? If we are eternal, there is nothing to fear.

You fear for your loved one's . Transient or everlasting doesn't matter when life of the person at stake is someone you love deeply.
