Dear death…

No one wants to write about death. Or dying.

To many, it’s not only a morbid topic. It is taboo to talk about it.

Of course we’d rather talk about the joie de vivre in our daily chronicles. It is, after all, what sparks joy.

Death is a stranger to this world. Until it comes knocking at your door.

For most of us, we go through the routines of daily living – Eat. Pray. Sleep. Love. Hate. Work. – Repeat!!!

But life is never fair. And neither is death.

Those who died yesterday had plans for this morning.

And those who died this morning had plans for tonight.

Don’t take life for granted. In the blink of an eye, everything can change. So, forgive often and love with a full heart. You never know when you may not have that chance again.

When we make plans in our life, death is never on anyone’s bucket list.

After all, no one prepares for death except those who are terminally ill. They’re actually the lucky ones. Those taken in their sleep or who die tragically, leave behind a family or loved ones who will never be able to say their final goodbyes.

No one knows exactly when our time in this world is up. Here today, gone tomorrow.

The last six months were brutal and painful. Many people who were very close to me had passed on. Death was on the doorstep each month. While we grieve at the loss, there is a bit of joy in the closure of pain and suffering. It takes the sadness of life, to appreciate the beauty of death.

If there are two things that are permanent in this world, it is change and death.

Nothing in life is promised except death.

– Kanye West
