A poem


It’s always a sad experience, the end

The young girl cries at the end of her favorite series of books

The heart is broken at the end of a relationship

Loved ones mourn the end of a life

I fear an ending of most things

But mostly I fear an ending of myself

It is something that humans cannot perceive within themselves

An ending and nothing more

But the girl reads the series over again

A heart is mended with new love

The family celebrates a life

Could we imagine doing it all over again?
