Revisiting Death

To plead
For more time
To bargain
For one’s life

To demand
To bribe

A friend
Then again
A foe

The chase of danger
To defy death
A Russian roulette
Death has won

Death arrives
Without fanfare
Death claims
Without notice

A veil covers
Death is hidden
Mystery unsolved
The dead silent

To call it sleep
No coming back
Some seek out
To hug death

The long night
Waiting for dawn
The first rays
Is death waiting

No escape
It is destiny
We all will die
No one escape

To crossover
The body dies
Life after death
The soul lives on

Faith, Believe
The Lamb crucified
The tomb empty
The Resurrection

By C.E. Pereira



I'm a Eurasian of Portuguese, English, Scottish and Malay heritage. And my extended family are of Chinese and Indian heritage. In recent years, the younger generation have added on to include spouses from the Philippines, Nigeria and Russia. My world is made up of different colours like the rainbow. And like the rainbow I am unique. Reading is my form of relaxation, to escape from the drudgery of daily life and enter into a world of the imagination. It is the love of reading that has led me to try my hand in writing short stories and poems. I hope that in some way my stories and poems will take you for a little while away from the drudgery of the present into the pages of imagination. To new friends found, I bid you, Welcome. Sincerely, C.E. Pereira
