It Took Him!

It was a serene place,
A world of two people,
A place filled with beauty and immense love,
A grandson and a grandfather-
A living bone unbreakable.
Yet Thanatos took the Grandfather...
It flung the grandson into a great depression
Where he lost himself.

A luminous light spread over the village.
The rivers sparkled with gleaming lights.
A Blowing of the wind spread on the grandson's face
As the grandson and grandfather spent their time fishing,
Lying on the boat seeing the ocean breath's wave, inhale and release
As they lay there thinking how life is enjoyable in its simplest form.
It was a happy memory; every minute all of life's worries were blown away.

He swore to himself to never
again let another loved one be
taken by Thanathos.
His anguish and hatred grew deeper
than the anger of a god!

In the depths of his mind
Life's melancholy swept over.
Yet, a time passed the tribulation of his torment ceased,
the raging tidal wave turning into the calming and soothing waves of the blue ocean.
The sea struck the shade from his immovable heart.

The Grandfather's love
still filled his heart, and time moved
on for the grandson.
Life's afflictions subsided into immense adulation.

This was great, the emotions and the way the way you depicted it was really good, but i have a question: Is Thanathos supposed to be death?

Hi Sumana2,

Thanks for replying, and yes Thanatos is referring to Death. Thanatos is the Greek God of Death. Sorry, I should have added another line of to describe him more to show he was death.
