Death and Its Moment

As you die
Someone is smiling
Not at you, or your death
Something completely unrelated
But they smile

As the light leaves your eyes
There is so much happening in the world
A child is laughing, while another cries
A father holds his new baby girl
An hour after her mother had died
How cruel does fate unfurl

One couple yells and argues
Another, comforted by a longing stare
A third finds their life renewed
Your friends may walk on, unaware
That anything has happened to you
Do you feel Death is unfair?

It can be interesting to think
Of all the things taking place
All around the world
As you accept Death's warm embrace

Life - A Series of Haikus

When you feel alone,
People might feel as you do
Don't worry so much

You say you're busy
But get out and just listen
Relax, and smile

It races and runs
All the while torturing
Waiting for the end

But when your end comes
Will you be prepared for it?
Or will you just die?
