Savouring the Warmth
Savouring the last warmth of a life
As the embers slowly set;
When finally it all makes sense
And the jigsaw is complete.
And residing in the ochre
Glow of that sunset
Are the cinders of a life
Giving warmth and light
To satisfy the heart.
There within that afterglow
Of all that has been achieved
Lies the essence of a life.
Yet it is never enough –
If we could just go back
To polish the edge.
There will come a time when life comes to an end. In the lasts minutes of that life will there be an understanding of what that life was all about? Would it all make sense?
I would like to think that I will look back over my life with satisfaction without dwelling on the bits that went wrong.
Merging into the infinity of oblivion, after this brief sojourn in this spectacular universe, will be tinged with great sadness. It will be hard to leave all this wonder behind. Will I ever reach the point where I will have had enough?
