One Day

One day this whole thing comes to an end.

The drama, the fight, the struggle – it’s all over.

In a flash we are gone.

It will happen to all of us, to me, you and everyone.

The light that gives us life leaves us and goes away.

People left behind are tearful, perplexed not understanding what has happened or why, bewildered; even though we all know it, it’s inevitable  – no one can escape it.

The fire burning within us slowly dwindles into a small flame and then extinguishes.

The spirit goes to the same place that it comes from.

Beyond this coming and going there is place of eternity, of space where another flames always burns, never extinguishing.

It is the light that gives us light and life.

It is a beautiful place, tranquil and smiling.

This morning I sit and contemplate on that light.

And I feel peaceful, in love and happy.
