Life and Death Become One

Life
Death
Bigger than us, perhaps

We step
Into the abyss
We call home

I think of my father, mother
You think of yours

From whence we came
They move on
We move on
And, we are left…

Not behind
But to ourselves, with God
To move from where we are
To where we end up
To where we end
And to a new beginning overtaking us
And there, life and death become one
