Father told his son, and I learned:
Death is a process of Living.
But I did not then understand:
Death must also be permitted
To forever walk by our side
For Destiny to Manifest
Beyond this worn circular path
We have endlessly trudged for years.

Destiny.  Death.  Come walk with me.
Yesterday I left fear behind.
My outstretched hand requests you both
To meet me Today in this Field.
Bright Angels of Magnificence,
I am ready to accept Life.

Now we may finally begin
On our long journey together
Toward the goal of Fulfillment
Promised at the moment of Birth.
