It’s always a sad experience, the end
The young girl cries at the end of her favorite series of books
The heart is broken at the end of a relationship
Loved ones mourn the end of a life

I fear an ending of most things
But mostly I fear an ending of myself
It is something that humans cannot perceive within themselves
An ending and nothing more

But the girl reads the series over again
A heart is mended with new love
The family celebrates a life
Could we imagine doing it all over again?
