I will love the light for it shows me the way, yet I will endure the darkness for it shows me the stars. — Og Mandino

COME, SAID DEATH

Come, said death
pointing to a young lady
dancing

Then death said, no
perhaps this one,
a child holding his father’s hand

No, this one—teenager chatting
with friends,
it’s all the same to me,

Possibilities abound,
amidst life’s bounty

— Abraham Menashe
