Death

Death is both hideous and wonderful.

It is hideous in that those left behind grieve of their loss. Their love is what brings pain. And we can do nothing but love.

It is wonderful in that it unselfishly gives way to new life. The world is a finite space. We must all eventually stand up and give our seats to others more needy of it.

So death should be a brief moment of sadness and a lifetime of joy. It should not consume you, the one remaining. It should give you the will to continue to do your best, to not waste even a single beat of the precious drum commonly known as The Heart.

    Absolutely! Warren, this is what I wish I would have seen and read 2 months ago. I think it would have been less stressful for me.
    I would have smiled and excepted things much better.
    Just as I thought I was at my end.
