The faces melt and fade
Death has tricked me again
Grandma and Grandpa are NOT with me
They will have to wait to see me dance
I am NOT home
Reality is starting to set in
Death is many things
It dances in my mind
Life has no guarantees
I dance with death every day
The death of childhood
coming to the realization of who I am
learning what I like and what I don't like
I AM an adult
now it's time to act like one.
There's the death of an old job
and the life of a new one
the uncertainy of knowing if I am good enough
the excitement of meeting each new task
and knowing I AM worthy
Old relationships die too
and new ones blossom
That first kiss that sends my heart soaring
and then the realization... the knowing...
that I AM loved!
The world is full of death and life
like a flower that dies
the seeds fall and a new flower is born
taking life from mother earth
Each life cycle better than the first
As I dance with death
for I am still dancing
I ponder these questions...
What reality am I living?
Isn't life just death and exhistance?
I live my life just going through the motions
I don't really pay attention as I should
Death constantly tugs at my life
My dance with death now slows to a stop
MY reality is... one day melds into the next
Time for ME to start each day as a new beginning
Make life count for me, and those around me
So that when I am finally gone
I WILL have made a difference
and I WILL be remembered!
