angel of death


I am beginning to know
that
it is possible
to die of love.

In all the long hours
of the day,
my heart measures
its slow beat
in the room of my ears.

The phantom press
of your fingers
uncurls
the hard fist
of my hand
there
where it
rests
against my eyes,
closing them so they need
not see
you are not here.

even though
it is
bright day
without,
still within
my darkened room
I stay,
watching light
shadow
itself
into
inevitable night.

It is more seemly
somehow
to wait
thus.

It cannot be long
now.
the thin
thread
of my life
runs
out like water
falling from
my fingers.

I am so weak
with
need
I cannot
rise.

It is an ache,
a hurt
nothing
can touch,
nothing
can heal.

I bow my head
and cry
in
the dark.

Not because
I know
that I am dying.

No.
Because
I yet
live.

silence grows
around me,
encircles me,
deadens the sound
of my heart.

I hear the ocean.

It is playing
among
grey-fogged
rock.

I am smiling.
It is too hard to keep
my eyes open to the world
any longer.

I see you there,
as my vision,
like a candle
snuffed to let in the night,
flees.

You hold out your hand.

For once,
I cannot hear what you are saying.

I kiss your forehead.
Hot tears
run down my cheeks.

I am so tired.
May I rest
awhile
within the sanctuary
of your kindly spirit?

At last.
At last, I am Home.

Re: angel of death

This brought tears into my eyes ... Thank you, Jan.

Even Angels Feel the Pangs of Love


Even angels feel the pangs of love.
(Vicariously, of course - their love is pure.)
Each finds a human love to serenade,
Leaving its perfection in the shade,
Yearning for the pain it must endure,
Near ecstasy with what it knows not of.
