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.
