Paradis Perdus

death

in the quiet of death,
in its uncertainty and
expected surprise,
is the greatest philosopher of all
teaching us the things we know (but forgot)
reminding us of life’s salience:
the sacrifice of love,
the madness of hope and
the gutsiness of faith.

to give and be given
and to forgive
on earth, where hell is present
and paradise is lost
