Death Poems For
The Grieving Heart
Book and CD


Clear Bell

So now you are in transit-
Magnificent barge of life cut loose
Drifting downstream to the open sea
Of death.

You go, a king,
Nobility clear,
Liability softened
Love, the one strand left
Linking you to us on shore.
Ego gone, body crumbling
Love lights the passage fore and aft
Sounding a clear bell from soul to soul.

Go now in majesty
Calm currents bear you
Out of narrow waters
To oceanic space,
Compass pointing
To your star.
