Let Death Come
Let death come as I gently bend over you,
placing my lips upon your warm forehead for the last time,
softly whispering 'good-bye', not, good-night.
Let death come like the hawk,
gracefully, slowly, spreading her wings,
soaring in the breezes, letting go of her past journeys,
as she's carried toward new horizons.
Let death come like the sun,
warming the vast meadow,
and blanketing her with a golden-glow
after a cold, bitter frost.
Let death come like the leaf, clinging to the branch,
gradually relinquishing her grasp, succumbing to the wind and swept beyond sight -
becoming one with the earth, somewhere again.
Let death come like the tall pine,
with her limbs extended
ready to receive her first winter's snow -
resting against the blue, cloudless sky,
gracefully shrouded in white delicate lace.
Let death come like the 'mother' with out-stretched arms,
drawing her newborn close to her for the first time -
holding her gently against her warm bosom.
Let death come peacefully, as day becomes night,
and the moon awakens, and the sun sleeps,
and the constellations light the way to the heavens.
Let death come as I wrap my arms around you,
feeling your soul depart my last embrace
long before the silence of your final breath.
Quietly, gently, without face or form,
bringing with her a promise of eternal peace
and the silent reminder of the child we now share.
Some special blankets that have just been finished ~
