A Passing Soul

After I have lived and died
Who shall there be to shed a tear or cry?
Friends silently utter words of praise
Of a life shared of joyous yesterdays
Now my body lies to be cremated thus
Before being turned to cindered dust
No pain will be felt as flying embers I make
Leaving nothing behind but a metal hip plate
For my spirit floated away some time ago
Leaving the world of people I came to love and know
Now nothing is left of me except ash and dust
And a metal hip plate now slowly turning to rust
Though we would wish a longer presence here
To live forever is something I would not cherish but fear
So I am happy to leave this body of mine behind
For my spirit will always be 'somewhere' around
And when the time is right and the sun shines high
I've asked that my ashes be released high up in the sky
Amongst majestic clouds that drift slowly across the ground
Casting shadows that move without sound
Heraldic angels could be heard if you were here to listen
The sun's captured light making the metal hip plate glisten
As it falls gracefully through the air
There are things in life we must be aware
What goes up always come down
I hope my metal hip plate doesn't hit someone on their crown
