Among The Stars


When I have gone, please do not cry,
Shed not a single tear.
Do not ask the question, why?
Or harbor any fear.

For I shall soar, above the clouds,
And tread the Milky Way.
Cast off these tiresome earthly shrouds,
Among the stars to play.

These jewels that light up the sky,
Shall be my resting place.
With silken wings, I'll learn to fly,
A smile upon my face.

The only legacy I leave,
Are these few words I write,
So, please, I beg you, do not grieve,
I go to join the light.

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.
