Keep Death Close to your Fingertips

Keep death close to your fingertips
Let it remind you of the light still inside
Keep death close to your fingertips
Let it focus your eyes on the light in which
you reside
Don't be afraid of the impending void
Because emptiness has nothing to hide

Make a friend of death
Hold his hand when you walk through the world
Make a friend of death
He has secrets others don't know and are afraid
to find
Let the limitations of time lay naked beside you
And bathe in the river of this brief life

John Berryman told us to 'travel in the direction
of our fear'
We are not guaranteed a day, a week, a month,
a moment, or a year
Inhabit fully this life and transcend it too
And tell the truth with every tear
