Life isn’t always fun or glad,
That’s just the way it is,
And just the same, death isn’t bad
To beat the drum that’s his.

He guides our souls as we’re submersed
Amongst the blissful stars
And shows us how the universe
Becomes completely ours.

  1. What a way to put it! 🙂
    I try to read it like a song. Beautiful.

    1. It’s not too surprising this would appeal to an astronaut at heart. 🙂

  2. Indeed-y do love this so true

  3. That is so clever I like it

  4. Personally I’d be happy to see the stars on television rather than have to die first. A bit like America – I’m happy to see it on CSI. Saves all the effort of passports and travelling and stuff.

    1. I feel the same way about swimming.

  5. I had to read this out loud after reading it the first time to get the full measure. And it flows beautifully. And I love the sentiment.x

      1. *Please insert this above Felicia’s comment –> Let’s eat cake.

        1. Hahaha! Too funny =D I’ll agree to that, too =)

    1. Hehe I know it’s a bit awkward, but thankfully my readers are forgiving. 😉

  6. Like this great interpretation to death…glad someone every once in a while makes a gentle portait of her (in Italy death is femminine as is birth) 🙂

    1. It’s interesting that death would be feminine in Italy, and yet rumors abound of how androcentric Italy is. Perhaps that is just from a tourist perspective?

      1. Well, I’d say our planet is androcentric and the Italians have made a lot of progress because of the late 60s early 70s spontaneous cultural revolution. As far as the language goes, I wrote a little post about it, oh, maybe a week or so ago (I write so much lately that I can’t place dates) explaining the oddity of the latin based languages with their genders for objects so il sole the sun is masculine, la luna the moon is femminine. Most every vital human function, life birth death illness etc are femminine…but things like travel war massacre are masuline. Much more complicated of course but it makes me wonder about the ancients. 😉

  7. I really like this one too.

    1. Glad you liked this one too! 🙂
