Death (is just a)

by David E. Merrifield
(Lowestoft, Suffolk United Kingdom)

Death is just a part of life that everyone must see,
I’ve tackled sorrow, aches and pain, I’ll tackle this with glee,

Death is just a word we use for coming to an end,
For explaining to a relative or very special friend,

Death is just reward I seek for living a long good life,
Of joys and pleasures, ups and downs, of trouble and of strife,

Death is just a way of saying my strength has almost gone,
I’m feeling tired, can’t get inspired, it is time to move on,

Death is just a concluding phase that shows me how to go,
And cherish all the memories of the people that I know,

Death is just a final show we all must celebrate,
The curtain is about to fall I don’t want to be late,

Death is just a chapter that’s included in the prose,
All pages have been written, so my story has to close.
