“But in this world, nothing can be said to be certain - except death and taxes” - Benjamin Franklin, 1789
What if death came knocking at your door tonight. Would you be ready?
Don Ford knows, as he reveals in his near death experience…
In the midst of life, there’s death.
Facing up to death makes us who we are.
We cherish our loved ones, our lost loves and friends.
Indeed, each loss might diminish us, but we will remember them...
and maybe in time others will remember us.
Poems, vignettes, and stories about our world, loss and love, where Don Ford strives for some sort of connection and reaction from his readers.
From “Only Her Memory””
“How was I to know that 9-11 would play all over again; that the subway would be the next target? I feel a cold sensation come over me, as I retell that horrible day and connecting weeks to follow. I had heard rumors of the subway being bombed, but that was everyday chitchat. No one really saw that actually happening. Lightning never strikes twice in the same place, so we heard. But it did on that particular Tuesday.”
