Death is a part of life that none of us can avoid. The poems in this anthology give insight into the world of those who are grieving, facing the death of someone they love, or even facing death themselves.
Some illustrate joy and acceptance; others, blackness and despair. Some are angry, sad, descriptive and emotional. There is an enormous range of feelings and experiences on the way towards death and through bereavement. These poems teach us about love and perseverance, patience and frustration, and, above all, about life.
