Can you bargain with Death when he comes calling? What would you say?

I wrote 'Delay' after Karen was transfered to MICU on 11/15/06; I was angry. Upset. And very, very scared; this poem was the result.

Angel of Death, did you ever live?
Know the meaning of love?  How can you
Take the one I love?  I do not give
You permission.  She's mine, not yours.  To
Take her would kill me.  I'm not ready --
Seeing my loved one out like a light,
Pale; weakened; vital signs unsteady --
I'm not ready to give up the fight!
What can be done to make you delay
Your decision?  Do we have a say?

(c) 2006, Karla Dorman.  (11/15)

Stark reality, written in pain and anger. Well done! So sorry you have to have the experience. Hope and pray Karen is improving each day and all is much better with you.

I can imagine your torment, here, Karla. I would have taken my case to Jehovah, though, for it is He who knowns the beginning and the end, and through Jesus defeated the sting of death. I'm sure glad Jehovah has other plans for Karen. Her work here is not yet finished. Your love for your twin is as it should be.

God Bless
Love, Lena

Strong emotions come into play when the life of the ones we love are in danger. We seek not to let go and offer their souls and their bodies back to the earth, we tend as humans to want to hold onto them for ever. I am glad you recieved an extension on your sister's life and may it be a long one.

I believe 'our' energy is transferred to those for whom we pray. Yes, you do have a say. Well written Karla.

Ooh, this is powerful; this grabs and doesn't let go. Glad I made it through; sorry you had to go through this! Very well done; brava, Karla! Glad all this is behind us now...

A beautiful poem of your thoughts during this time of crisis! Know that even the Angel of Death cannot overtake God's intercession for life! Your and Karen's strengths, all the prayers, were heard by the Almighty.

May this New Year bring more peace and joy to the both of you, Karla and Karen.

A very touching poem. When the time comes we have no say, dear sister. It is hard and quite frightening to imagine karen in the ICU. Please pass my regards to karen. your brother/friend in somalia

Quite powerful, Karla, and so very heartfelt.

Wishing you and your Twink the best year ever.
Reviewed by Susan Sonnen 1/2/2007
this poem proves that passion is not delegated simply to romantic relationships. Your anger at the times comes through in this work. You, like Karla, were and are very, very strong. May God continue to bless you both.
