Forever there after

poem by: Robert Kohlhammer
Written on Mar 24, 2017

What happens when we die?
It is common to fear the unknown 
To distance my thoughts so I try 
Neither text message nor telephone 

To myself can I not lie 
but to those I say hello
 I fear  when to say goodbye 
All I possess I must disown 

When you arrived
Had you not remained
You are of soul inside
No different but the same 

Of course life is where we are
With feelings and pain to experience
but without time that  makes us tire
we would never be aware of the being of our existence.
