I Do Not Fear Death

I do not fear death.

I held death in my arms.

I kissed death’s sweet face.

I know death intimately,

I nurtured it in my womb.

I gave birth to death.

I carry it with me always.


  1. Oh my...
    I too have had my share. I know it much too intimately.
    I wish we didn't

  2. I wish that we didn't have such an intimate relationship with death.

    I'm thinking of you. And always remembering A.


  3. Remembering A. Thinking of you. Love to you both.

  4. Yes. I wish we didn't know death in this way, but there is such sweetness there, too. i held nathaniel as he died. it was the most beautiful experience i could have imagined, but it broke me apart. Not fearing death can be such a gift, but too, too hard earned. xoxoxo

  5. Exactly as Suzanne said - not fearing death is strange and new and great I suppose... but I'd rather just have my Seamus and live in fear of death again. Too high a price.
