Magic Box

(September 3,1992)

Eulogy


For my thousand dreams and broken wing,
As some final words what would you sing?

How gentle I was or how righteous my acts,
In midst of strong winds how I stayed intact!

How much I loved and how I’ll be missed,
How boldly I saw death and gently kissed,

What would you say? The truth or some lie?
While mourning for me when I simply die?

Silence will win where life looses the game,
Unspoken words cause tears from my frame!

    Magic, I loved reading your poet notes and thank you for being so open. Your Eulogy is superb which I have saved. I have been a Funeral director and a celebrant attending many Funerals. I feel at peace within the cemeteries yet I am not ready to pass on until my time is ready. For I believe I am really needed on this earth. Just as you are! (Report) Reply

    A very well written poem asking a big question - we would all like to believe people will think and speak well of us after we arevgone. (Report) Reply

    Yes there are some people who writes their own eulogy. This act in itself
    is not as terrible as it sounds. It is just how they feel about life and are very
    contented with their lives. They know that God is the one that gives it and can
    take it whenever he so wills. To Magic Box you are a very gifted and talented
    writer. Please don't leave PH, your visitors, and of course your poet family.
    We love you and hope that you will always be a part of this family. If you
    would please read my poem A Member to Remember. This is a very potent
    write coming from a youthful Poet as yourself.. (Report) Reply

    I like to think you would go before me to prepare a place for me.
    So when we meet again there would be nothing but happy. (Report) Reply

    I liked this poem, but not the philosophy.Death -wish works as negative energy.In Rishi Aurobindo's writes I read this.Yes, poets express often that wish.I just can remember one line- - I want to cease in the midnight, with no pain... (Report) Reply

    i believe and i have living proof that god has created some people for great and for goodood purposes and for that He will take tests many tests preparing you for those purposes so you will face many hard time but just keep in mind that you are getting build for a war ahead that you are going win and the reason you will have a long long life bhayya

    now the poem well its simply brilliant.... (Report) Reply

    And so you are joining the galaxy of the death poets of the 19th and early 20th centuries! Soon the theme will leave you, I am sure and you will continue to live and live. Your kind words that you won`t soon die have given an assurance that in fact you don`t like to die..
    20 plus and great disastrous ambitions to nourish! What is this magic or unwanted which craft learned by you? But may I give you a TEN for this? Thank you for the smile. (Report) Reply

    @ the theme:
    Talk life, and life only, who knows when to leave the stage, no one has the guarantee of the next moment! ! ! ! ! ! !

    @ the structure:
    perfect couplets

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
