Poet 11586

Peace

Slipping into the night
My soul departs from this body
Breaking free from this reality
Oh death except my spirit
Into your eternal rest
Let not my ghost wander this earth
I am on my way home now
The final stretch
This bridge between earth and death
Grand gates of nothingness
Let my spirit dwell in your everlasting rest
Let me sit in this grave as the ages pass
Oh sweet ending
I've waited for you for decades
My beginning of eternity is now
I can forget
I can rest
