Death Re-defined

Death is defined

By the Lives

Left behind.

It is glimpsed

In the longing

That is felt

In the loved ones heart.

It is immortalized

In the tales told

To the next generations.

It is in the smiles

When everyone gather

For good memories sake.

It is in the smell

Of the favorite food

Cooked and relished

Along with the memories.

If it is so much a part

Of our living every day

Then how can we define

Death as parting.
