Death (Is Just A)

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.

And Death Shall Have No Dominion

And death shall have no dominion.
Dead men naked they shall be one
With the man in the wind and the west moon;
When their bones are picked clean and the clean bones gone,
They shall have stars at elbow and foot;
Though they go mad they shall be sane,
Though they sink through the sea they shall rise again;
Though lovers be lost love shall not;
And death shall have no dominion.

And death shall have no dominion.
Under the windings of the sea
They lying long shall not die windily;
Twisting on racks when sinews give way,
Strapped to a wheel, yet they shall not break;
Faith in their hands shall snap in two,
And the unicorn evils run them through;
Split all ends up they shan't crack;
And death shall have no dominion.

And death shall have no dominion.
No more may gulls cry at their ears
Or waves break loud on the seashores;
Where blew a flower may a flower no more
Lift its head to the blows of the rain;
Though they be mad and dead as nails,
Heads of the characters hammer through daisies;
Break in the sun till the sun breaks down,
And death shall have no dominion.

Dylan Thomas

Death Is Only A Door

Death is only an old door
Set in a garden wall
On gentle hinges it gives, at dusk
When the thrushes call.

 

Along the lintel are green leaves
Beyond the light lies still;
Very willing and weary feet
Go over that sill.

 

There is nothing to trouble any heart;
Nothing to hurt at all.
Death is only a quiet door.
In an old wall.

Remembering Me

To the living, I am gone
To the sorrowful, I will never return
To the angry, I was cheated
But to the happy, I am at peace
And to the faithful, I have never left
I cannot speak, but I can listen
I cannot be seen, but I can be heard
So as you stand upon the shore
Gazing at the beautiful sea, remember me
As you look in awe at a mighty forest
And in its grand majesty, remember me
Remember me in your hearts,
In your thoughts, and the memories of the
Times we loved, the times we cried,
the battle we fought and the times we laughed
For if you always think of me,
I will never have gone.
