FEAR YOU NOT

I do not fear you, Death,nor do I welcome you,although I have heard your cold whispersin dark times.I do not consider you as my friend,nor are you my enemy,although many loves of mine youhave embraced.You are that silent companion,life long,constantly by my side,caressing, from time to timemy soul within.I will not ignore you,nor invite you in.I will not push you aside,nor hold you close to feel your breath.I do not know what you want of me,or to what place you have awaiting,nor do I knowwhen you will pluck mefrom that tree of Life.This does not concern me.I do know, however,that before that final day comes,and my last kiss is yours,I will taste the sweet, bitter fruitsof Life.I do not fear you, Death,forLife has my total attention.

FEAR YOU NOT

Artist's Description

Two days ago I went to the funeral of a most remarkable lady. 92 years old and lived a full and generous life. Her name Hilde Knorr….author, artist, activist. After the funeral I went to visit my niece and her new born son. His name Archer. Full circle, so this poem was born.
