Death Poems

Death is the greatest leveler, they say. It's the ultimate truth of life that no living being can escape from. The big, small, short, tall, rich, poor, ugly, and beautiful; everyone has to go someday. Death puts an end to living or does it mark a new beginning? Go through these poems about death and dying. They'll inspire you to start thinking differently about 'the end'.
