Symptoms of Death


Do they know it ? Do they?

Sense death at the door

That this life and world will be no more?

Do they start thinking differently about their friends

Something inside knowing it’s the end

Start to get their affairs in order

Before they reach the final border.

Does the wind blow differently?

Does the sun shine brighter?

Perhaps the earth knows

It will be one soul lighter.

Are there symptoms of death

Do they whisper in your ear

Telling you the end is near?

I have to ask. I have no choice.

I think I’ve heard the reaper’s voice.

    This one’s sad and yet so beautiful. I’ve lived death through other people (don’t know if that makes sense) and it’s such a bad sinking feeling. Can only wonder what it’s like for the one who’s counting days. Lovely thought!

      With me it’s the fear of death that overcomes me and makes me wonder if it’s more than just anxiety and whether we all get whispers before our demise. Cheery I know đŸ˜¬

        I understand. I don’t let my mind wander to this particular front because I’m too scared what my brain will pull out from its depths. Plus being a brooder never helps. Loved your thought process though, very calm and collected. I love how all your pieces are so subtle and yet they speak volumes!
