Birth and Death Signs

January 13th, 2019

We cannot be born into our children except
by the rarest of circumstances -
but we are never the less given new chances.
We may not complete our task while this body is here but we will move closer - we must.
We leave so that we may return fuller.
The dates of the deaths of the people dear to us
may mean as much or more as the months we were born.
The life they leave with us,
Each Life is as whole as the one we are given when we are born
Though fuller, fermented, full of culture & memories -
A life full of living deeply
And perhaps I was born in the 7th month, and perhaps the 8th, and of course the first
But there’s no confusing who I know’s known death
