Grave is our destiny

the grave is our destiny
where none whatsoever can be changed
it's a wholesome place all to yourself
and nothing accompanying you but the wind

you hear nothing, not even their tears
that builds up from rivers to oceans
if only it was said before your destiny
perhaps it'd have made a difference

now you're all alone sad and forlorn
a world only you can dwell
but I know deep in my heart
everything you've had is remembered well

oh rest my love, soon I'll be there
where fate crossed not in this life
but somewhere love knows no bounds
and our love once more entwined

Lindsy, I'd love to know what was going through you mind as you wrote this poem, I love how it feels, I can feel the intensity of your thoughts as you wrote it, but it was sad, and the final piece left me wondering!

Our journey on earth is a very short one John. We would all wnd up in one place where we're back where we came from. In between the beginning of what and who we are comes a very intense and beautiful feelings through love. In our minds and hearts we experience all the ingredients of what makes life beautiful. Sometimes we lose that love along the way, but they stay forever in our lives through our memories. Tge last line given meaning to our wishful thinking that perhaps after this life, we're going to be with them again.

That's all. wave

While death is inevitable, to me it's also a beginning of something I know to be better.

One day we die. If we remember that we will die.
Than doing sin will be horrible for us.
As we heard that
As we sow
So shall we reap
Thanks for sharing. bouquet
Stay Blessed peace

So nice to see you around and hope everything is alright in your life. Have a very blessed day Tim and yes sin is our biggest downfall but we all have hope for a better tomorrow by not sinning anymore. wave

"The senseless killings in America lately the Covid deaths and all deaths in between. I find that so many are more fascinated with death than they are of life.

To consider that the ancient Egyptians were very much fascinated with death because they believed in the afterlife in the hope that anything they suffered through in their time had to be better in death."

Yes killing seems to permeates around us look at Ukraine, war, is such a formidable hindrance to what love is. Funny that I was thinking of death as a natural occurrence but not like this, brutal and heinous act against our fellow human beings. I can g on endlessly on these brutal acts, the likes of Stalin who killed 30 million, Mao about 70 million and so on and on. In reality, evil always seems to overpower the good in us.

I will continue Dear Ninurta. Your ideas as filled with wisdom that if we heed them perhaps humanity wins.

The grave is the destiny for our physical body. However, the glory of Heaven will be welcoming our Spiritual Body with our last breath. So the grave holds no fear of loneliness for those who believe.

I have gone to my Mom and Dad's graves for the past two years and know they are with loved ones, but I wish they could have stayed here with not only me, but the rest who needed them too.angel angel

Little dark and a little sad for sure........ people from up this far north often escape from getting old by moving to sunny places like Florida......especially for the winter......and often referred to as.......The waiting room to heaven....... ol' yankee humor......wave

Yankee, I hope you'll have it as you hope.

A dear friend of mine just passed away and this poem just holds the sentiment of passing. May she rest with our Lord. Hod bless you Betty Lou. You're loved.

I think we're bound to that journey one way or another.
I just said goodbye to one of a good friend who just passed away. I'm getting old myself.
