When this World is Forced to Surrender a Friend

When this World is Forced to Surrender a Friend
When this world faced with surrendering a friend
cries softly first of trepidation and fear
then joy
that gained is never lost but carried forward
in each 1st breath
of every downy new born
through open hearts in all
with place of following
when comes their time
Praise thoughts of those
who struggle same
hands raised in rebellion
voices raised in hope

The greatest challenge in life
is to live life
Passing is a breath
then a release

When this world faced with surrender of a friend
peers deep into the endless soul
extracting human song
beating of heart
freedom of joyous doves
whose wings unfold
clings fast to a single feather
tribute and remembrance
there to brush lightly tears
forming in grateful eyes
of those who carry on

The greatest challenge in life
is to experience the richness of life
Passing is a breath
then a release

When this world surrenders its own
a giving to all ever after
a cracking of mortal shell
expression of promise
Phoenix within
who crows awakening
impassioned voice
skill and speed
continuing message
implant into future
wind so wild
then gentle cooling breeze

The greatest challenge in life
is to greet the center of the hottest flame
Passing is to bathe
in the river found there
