By Mike Turner

I do not remember my birth

Nor the exquisite bliss that preceded it
When my soul was contained
Not by my physical body
But by the essence
Of all existence
As a part of Creation
I will not remember my death
When I leave this mortal shell
And my soul is released
To re-join the Whole
Where I will once again
Be one with All
Comprising the warmth and comfort
Of the Beauty that is Love
