Death, why do you live?

Death, why do you live?
"I live because
Your human life needs divine rest,
Your human life deserves supreme rest
After you have fought
In the battlefield of life."

Death, when will you die?
"I shall die
The moment
Bondage and ignorance
Forget your life
And the life of Earth."
Sri Chinmoy, The silence of death, Aum Press, Puerto Rico, 1973
