note: i have written this poem a couple of years ago at the saddest time of my life after the death of my dear father a great man who has taught me everything i've ever learned who has raised me to be strong and appreciate the beauty of life, i didn't stop to think about what i was writting it just flowed from the depths of my grief.

To know
To will
To love

To die on a mention of a word
never to live again

To wake
To move
To hate

to live again the moment your soul departs

to wait, to wait , to wait
Till you stop
you drop
you fall
you drawn.

To die? to live?
to love to hurt, to kill
to plant your pain in others hearts.

To cut, To saw
to dig and dig and dig
to throw the dust.

To suffocate
to bang
to kick
to scream
to rage.

Inside alive.Out side dead.
Struck with knives from all sides.

To long, to die a million times longing
to hold the air
to whisper, to cry
to utter words never said.

to know that never again,
will you love
will you see
will you learn.

To know, to know the end.

Your father, one of the greatest men, would have been proud to read this poem. I can almost see him smile with pride....I'm sure you have made him proud and make him proud still.
