Continuous Light

Avatar Author: Tad Winslow "If you don't work nothing will." Maya Angelou Read Bio

Why’m I
A part of time?

Life’s like the day—
Increasing,
Peaking,
Easing
Naturally away

Even when
I’m weakening
I ask for it to stay

The heart is
Dying in a darkness
Like the evening

Taken to awaken
In a lengthening ray
Of ever being
Never being led astray

Refreshed in newly fleshed breaths

I truly believe
That it’s like sunlight—
That in which the soul won’t rightly leave

    Enlightening.

    No one wants to die. – You rhymed that well, Tad

    The first three stanzas read very strongly.
    The last four; not as much, but a very efficient elegy altogether.

    If I’m correct, this is about dying and going to Heaven. God do I love this. My favorite line is the first: “Why am I a part of time?”

    Good to see you back. :)
