Death is often symbolized as something shadowy and dark; why do you think this is?

Also, how does this compare to the idea of a person seeing a light when he or she dies?

When we die our lives are snuffed out as we enter the darkness of death. The light people have said they've seen is thought by many to be heaven. For people who die without belief in the afterlife, death is the end. For those who do believe, the light represents a new beginning.
