This thing poem by steven james humphreys

this thing

This thing called death

comes by surprise

but I don’t like surprises

not even birthday parties

yet there never has been anything bad

I have heard said by those who’ve

caught a glimpse of the other side

they recall it was quite pleasant

and they were never alone

up there and were surrounded

by beautiful scenery, angels and unconditional love

the ‘bad thing’ they often comment upon is

when they were told they had to ‘return’ into that ‘earthly’ body.
