The Embrace

Day after day dark clouds filled your mind.

Your smile and your laugh were your attempt to hide.

Fear of the darness kept you going,

until you became friends with it.

I understood you becuse I embraced it too,

but you committed yourself to it.


You were standing tall,

feeling the cool spring breeze on your face,

then you stepped forward and the darkness inside you brought you down.


You feared living.

Your fear of leaving us behind wasn't as strong.

You no longer feared death,

you embraced it.


I don't fear death,

but now I fear for the ones I would leave behind.

Thank you for the fear,

because, at least for now, I will embrace life.
