    If I should die
    Don't ask me why

    Understand that death is beautiful


    Duty-full

    To leave the ego slain and alone
    Layin dormant and on it's own

    In fact

    I embrace death
    As a true friend

    And yes

    She is calling me again

    Now I lay me down to sleep
    Only so my soul can reep

    Rewards of the Most High I
    Do not mourn

    If I should die

    In fact celebrate my fate
    Really I should die

    For heaven's sake

    They have a wake
    Once you mortal body dies

    But then it's to late
    To open up your eyes

    If I should die
    It is really only so that I may live

    Death is beautiful really she is
    She builds you up only to destroy

    What the flesh has told you
    And to break the chains of the way they mold you

    For she lurks
    And she watches
    She keeps the time

    She offers eternity
    And love divine

    so

    If I should die
    Don't ask me why

    Just pass on by
    And know I live

    The core of our impression, we leave behind. To die satisfied that we have accomplished most of what we intended to do, is a blessing. I wonder how many die with that satisfaction? Just some thoughts I had upon reading this well posed write poetess.

    the core of our impression.. indeed.. u should scribe that.. it's deep...

    i was even thinkin it funny that when someone dies they call it a "wake"...

    pieces of me die daily... tryin to kill the ego completely...

    only to see the will of the Almighty...

    thanks for the love
