 Where Peaceful Poetry Flow


Today is the day, I am free,
On this earth, I no longer want to be.
Family and friends do not mourn for me,
I will finally be at peace, and I will be free.
Remember me fondly, and do not cry,
Do not be angry, because I did not say goodbye.
As I start my journey, and the day is through,
Know as you loved me, I loved you too.
I know your hearts are hurting from this tragedy,
But try to understand I want to be free.
As I close my eyes and start to ascend,
Remember me as Son, Father, Brother, Uncle and friend.
I hope one day, we will all be together again,
I don't know how, and I don't know when.
I need to go, and this you may never understand,
Remember me as a kind and gentle man.
Thank you all for the love you have given me,
Know that today, your Son Father, Brother, Uncle and friend,
                                        Is "Free".
