Emily Dickinson - A throe upon the features

A throe upon the features --
A hurry in the breath --
An ecstasy of parting
Denominated "Death" --

An anguish at the mention
Which when to patience grown,
I've known permission given
To rejoin its own.

Death makes us nervous, but if we're ready for it, it is much easier.
