When we think of our loved ones who have passed, we tend to get sad.
I invite you to look at “death” in a different way. It’s taboo in our culture to think of the passing of a loved one as anything but tragic, but Byron Katie says we are being self-centered and selfish (we, the survivors) when we think this way.
Preparing for the dinner fete
Bought fish, veg, cake and wine
Suspense meets calm as time appears
At last our love combines
Your sons – maturing to great men
quickly they get settled
Our daughters – browsing internet
join us for tete-a-tete.
Supper’s ready, we take a seat
Salmon is smoky yum
But wait, asks Nate, where’s the kimchi?
Just happen to have some!
More great conversation is had,
Boys give chase to the pooch,
While violins ser’nade,
Us three take sips of hooch.
As all good things come to an end,
The boys get quite tired,
You gather kids and things, we hug,
I am left inspired.
