Brother Death
26 May, 2010
author: Rebecca Ditch-Hammack (aka Dreamer)


Oh Brother Death
How I long to walk beside you
In your arms I know I will find peace
I follow the paths you have laid before me
Overwhelmed by emotions that follow
I succumb to the inevitable

Oh Brother Death
I will not lay down for you
Though I know one day it will come
When my lessons are finished
The paths finally end
Only then, will I talk with you again

nice poem

Creative how you personify death. The last stanza is a great way to finish the poem.

thanks Meri

I was in an odd mood that day and as on most odd days this one wrote itself.... Glad you liked it.
