Hello Death

Disheartened?

Death has plagued me.

Every time I open my eyes he slaps me.

Hello death!

 

A soldier, a friend, an aunt, so many

Saddened for a while

Awoke one morning

Rain on the cusp; electricity in the sky, God was bowling again

 

A shower over the land,

Washed the dust off my car and the grief off my heart.

No more do I ponder why. Why death came knockin’

Hello Death!

 

You’ll come from my Memaw, Papaw and Mom,

You’ll knock for my father, my sister,

AND ME.

Hello Death!

 

I am no longer burdened by the fear you bring

I am now, still alive, heart beating, air breathing.

Dylan Thomas I will be.

A long boring life, what fun it that?

 

I’d much rather you knock

When I’m havin’ fun

If I don’t answer

I’m too busy livin’!
