The Spectre of Death

Death is an inevitability that we find hard to accept. It looms at the corners of each household. It can claim one when one is most unaware . It has that immense power over us. We acknowledge its power but most of the time we do not reconcile with it. We are inconsolable when death strikes our near and dear ones. We weep, tears flow and our heart is burdened with the pain and loss. The loss of a loved one hits hard for we lose them forever. The loss is physical as well as emotional for the person will no longer be there for our support, will no longer be there even to call out to us. This silence is that which makes death unbearable. Of course, death cannot erase the memories of the person who has died. After the mourning is over, the memories of the person remain etched in our mind.
