Life After Death

life after death is silent
as in a cemetery

mourners came and went
dirge and elegy are gone

death does not hear
even a silent prayer

death does not see
even the dark underground

when death does speak
you do not hear

when death does smile
you do not see

a song of those who are no more
cannot be sung

the singer of another world
cannot be seen

life is not a drama
world is not a stage

the theater is empty
in a drunken town

Well conceived and nicely crafted in persuasive poetic expressions with artistic brilliance. An insightful work of art. Thanks for sharing, Suchoon.
So many mystics say after death we will experience light in its purest form......... if you one possesses a pure heart the experience of light and the journey into light will be a very very happy experience....... thank you very much for your meditation on death. tony
