Not Entirely here

Sadness is a companion we carry
Unable to hold on to dear life we search for meaning,
for purpose, and for hope that there is something better out there.
But when the walls start caving in,
and the thread seems too thin to hold on to,
we let go
and like a swift wind, death sweeps us away
Perhaps it was our fate all along,
but I can't help but wonder why?
Indeed death only takes the body,
the soul ventures into the afterlife
and left behind are the memories and the words which you have left behind- yet we are all left with the thought of why you chose to leave so soon.

    I liked reading your poem and was touched by it. I think the way you shift from a philosophical and general statement to a personal one is very effective. I hope the poem isn't about someone close to you, that took their own life, or maybe died from natural cause at a young age..I have the greatest respect for poets like you who can elegantly express and share tragedy.

      Thank you so much. It really means a lot coming from you ❤
      It was actually a piece I wrote when I participated in a fusioned poem for a poet on here that took her own life last year. I just reposted it again because it felt like the right thing to do.
      Once again, thank you so much ❤
      It's comments like yours, that keep me motivated
