    And at last, the veil is death.

    You are the veil, you are death.
    The funeral dirge of song,
    the eternal rest of life,
    dust to dust you now belong.
    You are the veil, you are the casket
    in which the shell is placed.
    The ceremonial encasement
    where the body is now based.
    You are the veil, you are the eulogy,
    the good tidings of the tale within,
    a pinch of bitter, and a bit of sweet,
    a story told to friends and kin.
    You are the veil, you are
    the weeping mourners tears.
    They will miss the life they've come
    to know, the hopes and yes, the fears.
    You are the veil, you are the burial.
    The final goodbye for the living.
    As the chamber is lowered, the amens
    follow the message the clergy was giving.
    But, the message does not end here.
    For with every door that closes,
    a new one opens. Revealing a rebirth,
    a new season, and a new blossoming of roses.
    And the veil remains.
    It is born
    in the writings of poetry and prose
    It foretells
    in similes and metaphors
    It is a curse
    in fact and in fiction
    It dies
    But it is reborn
    The Veil.....


    This is the final installment in this series. Thanks to all who read, and all who responded.
