Five More Breaths

Do not worry about your final show
Your goodbyes were made
A long time ago

Do not worry about your friends and family
It will be taken care of
By destiny

If you had known your time had come
Would you have done
What is to become?

If you had known peace is on its way
Would you have betrayed it
For another day?

Into my paradise, you will find
You have paid
Your price in kind

Into my heaven, you put your feet
Five more breaths
Then we meet

  1. Morning Frank. This was very beautiful poem. Some times I think death isn’t natural, it to this day freaks me out to watch someone dying or draw their last breath. This poem gives us something to think about. Thank you for sharing.
