Gesture of Departure

I sit prepared now

For the things that may or may not come

A settling overcame me

Bringing peace.

 

Even if Death challenged me now

A smile would come to me

And the world

I’d leave behind

With a thought,

With a gesture of departure.

 

Life is easy for no one

Despite what we think we see

None of us escape hardships,

Death is but a breath away.

 

I am armored up

I am ready

I expect nothing

Yet wish for the best.

 

You, bringer of pain,

I fear you not

Nor the consequence of my ignorance.

 

You are but a stone

A step to the side

Onto a path of heaven

Perhaps soon

We shall meet again

And your cloaked companion

Shall be with you

Just as before.

 

My mind is settled.

All is well.

My ears listen.

My eyes watch.

My soul awaits.

A sword in my hand.

Comfort within.

Bring it on, my friend.
