An Ode to Death

a poem by Sanam Latif

I used to be afraid,
To take that final step.
Where I would surrender eternity
And nobody could help.

When suddenly an angel cast her eyes on me,
And told me that death wasn’t final,
That it wasn’t like it used to be.

Told me that those who I loved,
And who in turn loved me.
Would think of me by and by with tenderness and loyalty.

Showed me how had it not been for me
How different things would be,
That I would live forever
In the heart of humanity.
