After the end

You'll find the fingerprints of angels

On everything

As you chase the screams of your vanishing half

Into the wild mist, of dark matter.


For death comes to call unscripted

It's the train to impossible places

Only stopping at new beginnings


On arrival, you're still breathing

Heart steadily beating

And you are transformed

Every end has the seed of a new beginning

A train that only stops at new beginnings. A thought to wrestle with. Death is a new beginning and heralds lifes journey end.

Very enjoyable read.

A burial error

I left school and trained to be an undertaker,
A privilege it was returning the dead to their Maker.
Many a sad moment I had burying the dead,
Experiencing the flow of tears from many a head.
The pay was good and everybody was ace,
But sadly I was sacked for burying a body in the wrong place !

Unfortunately I'd made a grave mistake !
