Death


Death

Was thinking about death today
In this peculiar way

Not of friends or family
Of those I would know
The passing of my cyber friends
Was the thought
That perturbed me

I would be sad
To lose my poetry buds
Their beautiful words
Would be no more

It would be a sad day
Indeed
The world would be deprived
Of one who brought joy
With words
To so many

My thought was
How would I know
Of their demise
When our connection
Is through poetries eyes
On the Gplus site

So all of you
Poetry cyber friends
Please take care
For it’s sad to say
That one day
You will not be here
To bring joy
To us all

And I for one
Will rue that day
With great sorrow
