Vulnerable


Life passes each day
and somehow I am still here
a moment, a second
then - poof, I shall be gone

Inheritance of money
for my children I have left none,
only the legacy of wisdom
and love from mom

Pain, seems endless,
yet it is not physical
it is a mourning to those
that have left me behind,
and I wait patiently for my time.

Hark, who is beckoning from that
veiled, cloaked, white gloved
finger, coaxing me to follow him
to I don't know where?

I am sad, but not quite ready,
though the temptation tickles
the eagerness of wanting to know
what lies ahead - after life.

Yet, I have been close, oh so
tempted to follow leaving
this troubled, unsettled earthly existence,
that we pathetically cling to the,
body to find true freedom of
a spirit untrapped, soaring looking down.

Someday, peace and tranquility
shall envelope me, and then ...
I shall truly rest for a moment,
until I seek my new adventure of Death.

Teresa - Excellent poem, my friend!  It gets better every time I read it!  I especially like the phrase "though the temptation tickles" - exquisite choice of words!

I have to agree here, Teresa... You've taken a very sensitive subject and handled it well.  I'll be reading lots more of your work..

I agree with nan,
you have elegantly,
not depressingly,
expressed the element of death.
It's so important for people
to understand
that death doesn't HAVE to be a horrible, escaping, black dark place.
I really like how your mind puts your words together, I will tune in to more, as I have said, i enjoy your writting.
kindly,
redbraids
