    Do you long to feel Death's sweet embrace? Do you long to dance with it face to face and drownd in its long shadow.

    I am happy for you that you do not long for death. I understand the difference on most days, the difference between wishing to never have been born, wanting to die, and just no more pain please, I can't take any more. I seem to volley between the three. I originally wrote this for my grandmother when my grandfather died. The look of devastation never left her eyes. Now my husband has died, it has been 2 years and the anniversary is coming on the 28th of July. He was only 46. So I guess I ended up writing it for myself. Thank you for the well written comment. That was thoughtful.
