I am not fearful of death
for I have been trapped within it's jaws
and faced the eyes that blaze the fire
as I confronted and paused

But I looked beyond the face
and felt a sense of grief
a perception and a readiness
to enter into another relief

But death released me from it's grasp
it allowed me to retrieve what I had lost
and awaken to love enveloping
love that could not exist without cost

Well and truly said. I am glad your verse lightens, songbird. You have found a family here and reason for hope as well.

Echo, my heart sings to know you're ready to meet hope and faith with hungry arms....Death has only been your worst enemy....don't ever let him steal you away from us....Live every day with the knowing that you have conquered all....& rejoice at your newfound strength !! Bravo!

Hopeful and well-written. When you cheat death, you do not escape unchanged ... he leaves with you a heightened sense of appreciation for the simple things in life. It is this that shines through in this poem. Echo, we celebrate your return to happiness. God bless you.
