Returning – a poem about life and death

 

Returning

Each second that we live we dare,
And in death too we give to share,
We are all part of the great cycle
and return to the plants, animals and air.

No atom do we hold for long
No matter how cold and strong
We are part of a great wheel
That holds us all where we belong.

Connected through our DNA
Through the realms of eternity
To life in all its panoply
We have our time in which to play.

The time of stars has different span
To that enjoyed by plant and man
So enjoy it while you can
That is the essence of my plan.
