And When I Die


When I die, do not weep for me, for I will be in heaven where I want to be. Just remember me by my collection of poetry.
Read my poems when I am dead and gone.
Whenever life's journey comes to an adrupt end-
it is time to move on.

Yes, when I die I will be escorted by a heavenly
angelic escourt direct to me from God who rulues on High.
He will whip away all my tear drops from mine eyes.
I will feel no fear and have no more earthly pains and
regrets. I will be experiencing the best times yet.

I will live throughout all eternity. In the presence of the
Most High God I will always be!

    A very inspiring poem. The poet is not afraid to die, wants to be remembered by the poetry she leaves behind, is hopeful of a peaceful eternity (not of punishment for the worldly sins, as we hear) . Her faith in God makes it all the more beautiful. (Report) Reply

one thing.

You know how this is:
if I look
at the crystal moon, at the red branch
of the slow autumn at my window,
