One Without the Other
She sees the small lights flickering
And She smiles softly as She watches them grow.
She sees all their happiness
And all of their sadness.
She comes close to them
When their love one journeys to Her,
But She leaves them alone for their time was far.
Years past and the lights dim down
And She can see Age catching them.
Then comes the day
When She can go collect them.
Their lights, once freed from their shells,
Oppose Her as She pulls them away.
"We're not dead!" They scream in agony
And She only smiles as they weep.
Soon they fall silent and the lights began to flicker.
She drifts to their young daughter
And places the lights in her womb
For without Death, There can be no Life.
