Poem- At life’s end

There is this one certainty, this one thing we all know. That is when you arrive here, one day you must go. On that day what was solid, shatters apart, except for this one thing, the force of the heart. The force of the heart is uncontrollable and extends beyond time. Beyoned matter and comprehension, it just stays behind. It’s stubborn, fiesty and will always show up. It’s not going anywhere, there’s no way it will stop.

It’s the part of your love that was allowed to stay. The part that will forever guide you on life’s way. It knows you’re now angry and want ‘the real deal’. That you want to hold her, want her to feel. In a hug or a kiss express all that she means. Talk to her, laugh with her and share all your dreams.

The force of the heart knows the last thing you want now is to simply feel. For when you allow that, this all becomes real. So it will patiently wait for you to show up. For you to allow it to never stop. For this force to be your companion, to be cherished every step of your way. To be the hand you can take and to trust it to stay.

There is this one certainty, this one thing we all know. That is when you arrive here, one day you must go. But never forget that out of bonds we have made, a force of the heart is what we create. It’s this one thing that stays with you, this part never dies. It’s everlasting and knows you and will not subside. This force that connects you, that outreaching hand. It will always be with you until you’re united at life’s end.
