Welcome Home, not Farewell

The inevitability of the cessation of
earthly consciousness…well, only for
a time, t and possibly a distance, d.
An equation of life demystified a couple
of thousands of years ago
Yet, many find themselves grappling at
straws void of tangibility and meaning

Of course, your time was near as every one’s
With each breath we draw in and exhale
in a repeated manner
This time, the tentacle of time had swung
so low rupturing its hold
Yet, the loss of consciousness is in a
league with sadness and shock among your
loved ones
Thankfully it’s not the end at all…
no it’s not

Does the lacrimal gland feel the pressure
at all
It does, for the intermittent supply of
fluids wouldn’t stop among many…
o ye loved one
Would the images and thoughts of you
stop yet
Sharper than the tip of a tungsten needle
Pinching us to a new reality

Oh well, it’s the inevitability yet again
On one side of the coin, a very ugly head,
on the other hand, one we can live with
It’s okay to go
It’s okay rest

Home is where the heart is, he said
But where is home when the heart falters
irreparably
Tumbling in silence on the slippery slope

Where is home when the eyes cannot perceive
and the consciousness is lost in its entirety
Shut off
Darkness
A resounding hollow

Yet he forgets
Home calls to us everyday one way or the other
For some in a high magnitude, for others it’s
barely a light feather weight
There’s a light in a man that ushers into
the other realm
Even if the heart stops beating and loving
And the compounding consciousness from
birth drains away
The path the elders tread is laid bare to
guide one to the final destination
Free of the earthly weights and decadence

Home is home
Where the eagles are in an innumerable company
And the Light perpetually shines on

I know home, and I define it for you
To you, in your earthly lost consciousness,
home is where I know you currently are
Written on the tablet of my heart

Home is where we meet again where love reigns.

Rest on dad

1 Thessalonians 4:13-14 NIV
13 Brothers and sisters, we do not want you to
be uninformed about those who sleep in death,
so that you do not grieve like the rest of
mankind, who have no hope.
[14] For we believe that Jesus died and rose
again, and so we believe that God will bring
with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him
