When Death Walks Closely By...

When death walks closely by
Or carries one away
We turn to touch more tenderly
Those little words we say
‘Good-morning’ and ‘good-night’
Are sweeter than before
Because ‘O Death’ walked closely by
Reminding us once more

A neighbor/husband/daddy was killed suddenly in a farm accident this past week…

'What you have; each other, never let a day pass without cherishing it'. From Larkrise to Candleford


  1. So sorry Janet. Hard to come to terms with such things. Poor family.
    A beautiful poem-tribute.

  2. Thank-you Sasha,

    His wife said they live in a caring community and they will get through this one day at a time...

  3. So true. My sympathies to everyone involved.



Thank you for your visit to this porch. I'd love to hear if or how this post/poem touched you!
