NO ROOM AT THE INN

NO ROOM AT THE INN

It's not fun when you're seventy-one
and suddenly your body gives way
to your DNA

grandfather to mother
mother to son.
There is no sense in fighting
when there is no winning
and cold hearts turn away.
It's done.

The door is closed.
The lights are out.
Yet I hear someone
moving about,

What would mamma say.....

She would say its only her rustling round and pottering about ;)...As always a wonderful poem, I have to say its easy for me to read between the lines and understanding that things are in constant change for you, know that I am always here for you.

but how one will die and when by accident self annihilation or asphyxiation or heart failure lungs filled with wine or what curse of divine one good thing the creator kept it all in suspense the other day the doc did say flying no way he was a bit wrong he thought i will fly along the aircraft will carry me i told him then he said okay take a flight any day and so I am alive the whole night i died why can’t I fly the airports will die and mommy will cry why kiddo hasn't come to see me cry oh Lord why is man afraid of death it’s the only thing about existence no fiction the only and whole truth friends relax some day they will fax he is no more

Punctuate it at your own peril it will keep you busy and deathly hour will pass by ....the you will all sigh, Loved never say good bye

The universe wastes Nothing. And the law of conservation of energy clearly shows that energy is neither created nor destroyed but is changed in form only. And isn't life determined by the presence of energy? So when life ends this energy Must become something else or go somewhere else. Apparently you are now 71..I am 60. We both are getting closer to that final transformation the difference being that you know by what mechanism you will arrive while mine is as yet unclear (But I'd put my money on coronary disease).
I have no concrete proof that there is life after death. But I have been given quite a few hints over time that there's Something there other than void.
I'll not suggest you go quietly into that good night. But I WILL suggest that there is something there. Keep up the fight. We all have that final trip to face and for some it's sudden...............stan

I have had "signs"" but ;but the impact of their meaning. I need to concentrate on the here and now,, but need to be with my family up north. Brother and sister all I have left. Sorry to say they are not ,sensiitve to my needs.71 is not old. but it is a disadvantage with my disease and I have to take care of myself, It is not a "happy"" time in my life.

Thanks, Stan,

That being physically dead is an absolute, but what the hell, the point is to live here while you have this beautiful chance to use those senses given to you by whoever.
Joe your words of:-
.
The door is closed.
The lights are out.
Yet I hear someone
moving about.
.
I can picture your Mothers Spirit watching over your anguish, being bombarded each day by your negative thoughts.
She is aware of your tasks and what you have to go through before you are once again joined as you will be.
Yesterday I went to my younger sisters Birthday party, the theme was of the 40's as she was born in 1944, there were four of us there, two Brothers and two Sisters, the four left out of a family of ten two other Brothers and two Sisters have left already.
Now we dwell on the four that are here still in this physical life form.
We are aware of the others that have gone before and bring them to the party with us in our thoughts, we see them dancing or just sitting there holding council, they all enjoyed the party.
Come on now start to enjoy the end game join others of like minds stop making the life you have left a pain to all around.
Those that have gone before no wonder they are moving about you, they have to enjoy your life also.
Take care of you all out there, Yours as always Ian.T
PS:- "In my house are many mansions" I guess that this means that there is always a place for everyone.. You can sit where you think to, and be with whoever you think too, always remember that the purer ones are on a higher plain, and you go to where like minds are, so live in unconditional love always..

.
There are a million reasons to believe in yourself,
So find more reasons to believe in others..

Yes, my dear friend; ,that it be so.
