Death, the great unknown, a mystery we can't unearth,
A whisper in the wind, a shadow that gives birth.
To thoughts of what's beyond, to questions we can't solve,
To memories that linger, of those we could not involve.
It's the end of a journey, the close of a book,
It's the last breath we take, a final goodbye look.
Yet, it's not just an ending, but also a new start,
A chance to be remembered, to hold a place in the heart.
For death is not a defeat, but a passage to be,
A transformation, a journey, that sets our souls free.
So let us not fear death, but embrace what it brings,
For it's a part of life, a dance on the strings.
Of life and its journey, that ends and begins,
And though death may seem dark, it's light that it brings.
