Life and Death

Life and Death

A Poem by MandaBear

Life had a conversation with Death.....

What if Life and Death had a conversation.....

Life - How are you Death?

Death- Dreadful and cold. How are you?

Life- Colorful and happy. What are you going to do today?

Death- Cause misery and pain. 
Take  away any amount of happiness in the world.
What about you life?

Life- Spread good cheer and hope to all creatures of the earth.

Death- How Dreadfully awful of you to do such a thing.

Life- May I ask you a question Death?

Death- If you must.

Life- Why do people love me but hate you?

Death- Because you are a beautiful lie and I am a painful truth.
Death is a stripping away of all that is not you.
The Secret is to die before you die and find that there is no death.

Life- Yes that is true.  Life is beautiful there are no regrets in life, just lessons. 
If your brave enough to say Goodbye, Life will reward you with a new Hello.
With that life and death parted......

"Good night, good night! parting is such sweet sorrow, That I shall say good night till it be morrow"

Very well written! I especially loved the line where death says "because you are a beautiful lie and i am a painful truth." Couldn't have said it better!

Life and death are a team. We must know both in the end. The key part is what we do between life and death. I did like the conversation. A very entertaining poem. Thank you for sharing the excellent poetry.

I love this, its really a mark of reality. Life is a beautiful lie, but to those who live it in sorrow. I love it, and the structure.

I found this to be very interesting, quite thought provoking, raising many good questions as one ponders life and death. Parting is such sweet sorrow, but we cannot have one without the other. Great write as always, keep writing, keep expressing :)
