The Last Journey


The last journey
Is when you shall depart
Not to an exotic island
For a holiday
Neither to a mountain
For a treck
That day when you depart

The last journey
Is when you shall depart
Not with your spouse
Or Children
Not on a trip
To visit beloved parents
That day when you depart

The last journey
Is when you shall depart
Not in a suit and suitcases
Not in your golden bracelets
And necklaces
That day when you depart

The last journey
When you depart
Not in a plane
Not in a limousine
With aides
That day when you depart

The last journey
You will be driven, not driving
You will be leaving, not returning
They will be crying, not laughing
