Time, O Time, do wait! it cannot be curtains yet some chapters are still left the body may be but a mound of sand ravaged by time’s waves but the heart smoulders still with many a pain to feel alive.
Time, O Time, do wait! don’t be waylaid by the sagging shoulders nor by papery wrinkled skin I do gasp for breath sometimes as they bunch in my rheumy chest but ties of blood do help me up their cheery voices call out to me I think not it’s time yet
Time, O Time, don’t wait any longer! I think I have lingered enough death refuses to meet my eye wavering in and out of clouds of fogginess I hang heavy on everyone’s time promise me an encore in another lifetime ’tis time to finally rest.
The evil that we do lives much longer than us the wily all pervasive monsters that technology created had me in their thrall all my life and now that I have shed my mottled mortal coat the lure of my device has given afterlife to my creaking, enduring bones dear Death, we were inseparable you can not part us this match made on Earth will continue… in heaven or hell!
I would like to extend heartfelt gratitude to each one of you for your wishes, prayers and blessings. My cousin’s daughter left for Romania on Friday. My husband and I picked her up from the airport today morning. Her brother is still stuck in the hostel though he was supposed to leave this morning. There are too many kids and not enough means of transport. But we are hopeful he will leave sometime tomorrow and be here in a couple of days.
All things die All things end End is nigh End is inevitable Inevitable is demise Inevitable not birth Birth is joy Birth is beginning Beginning to end Beginning of life Life is beautiful Life can be pain Pain to be endured Pain can kill Kill with weapons Kill with words Words are a balm Words can be sharp Sharp objects maim Sharp words hurt Hurt I retire Hurt I hide Hide your feelings Hide behind walls Walls to safeguard Walls are haven Haven is home Haven is heaven Heaven is here Heaven or hell Hell on earth Hell after dying Dying sunlight Dying is fated Fated to live Fated to endure Endure hardships Endure all aches Aches my heart Ache my bones Bones turn brittle Bones will be interred Interred forever Interred for eternity Eternity is humbug Eternity is truth Truth is death Truth is proud Proud Death
