With Death, Love Does Not Die…
POETRY FORMAT, 13 August 2012
by David Inkey – TRANSCEND Media Service
With death, love does not die,
we cry tears of deep grief for our own relief,
memory is a bridge cresting on a special ridge,
with death, love does not die…
in each life sentence,
let us find time for repentance…
sorrow we need not borrow,
each other’s joy we may employ,
