A Death

A poem about death. We comfort the ones who are left grieving. Life goes on, no matter how much we missed our loved ones.

A Death

This poem is an Etheree poetry form, that my wife, Noreen taught me.
This poem is about death. We must go on with our lives after we grieved because that is what our loved ones wants us to do.



A Death


One
One death
a heart stops
someone is sad
we shall gather round
to bless and bury him
Life goes on; we can not stop.
We comfort the sad for a year.
There's still a lot of life for our friends.
We love, yet some don't know it 'til a death.
