Stories Worth Remembering

When It Comes

When It Comes

By Todd F. Cope

Some of us see what lies ahead,

And prepare in every way

For the final leg of this journey

That we know will end some day.

Others may have clouded vision,

Or simply choose not to see

What awaits at the end of the road

Where life meets eternity.

But no matter which one we are;

Ready or shocked when it comes–

The sting of death and the void it leaves

Feels the same for everyone.
